Visit for more related articles at Journal of Diabetes & Metabolism Abstract Literature data indicate that the effect on blood glucose levels of a single bout of exercise may persist up to 48-h after cessation of exercise. Regular exercise improves insulin sensitivity and blood glucose control in subjects with type 2 diabetes and is considered a key element in the management of this condition. However, adaptive responses to exercise are altered in diabetic subjects and medication Continue reading >>

    New to diabetes, feeling dizzy & weak...

    I am 36 years old and have recently been diagnosed w/mild diabetes. I have a 2 year old and had gestational diabetes, took glyburide, diet.. Last month I was diagnosed with mild diabetes and have started trying to control it w/ diet alone. My sugar is not typically astronomically high it just constantly fluctuates and the more I have been implementing my diet the more I am feeling exhausted and dizzy, moody etc. Has anyone else been having this problem? I felt better when I didn't follow a diet. I am not overweight and was already cutting out most of the foods that are to be avoided so I am pretty discouraged by the fact that I am feeling worse than ever. Thanks for the help!

    It may be that you are cutting your carbohydrates too much.
    Do you have a glucose meter? If we had some numbers, we might be of more help to you.

    I don't check it that often right now b/c I am not required to. I do have a meter but don't relish the idea of checking it 5 times a day as when I had gestational diabetes. I am only required to check it a few times a week. This morning it was fine, 94. I do have some quick questions if you have a minute. My doctor's office didn't tell me much since she said I wasn't "brittle" whatever that means. Anyway, when I was pregnant they wanted my morning fasting blood sugar to be < or equal to 95 and the remainder of the day b/w 90&120. Is this still my same goal? I have read a few blogs from other people who clearly have a much worse case than I do but they said that when their blood sugar dropped but was still high they experienced symptoms of low blood sugar. My sugar starts out some days around 115 for example and by 10:00am I am shaky and feel like I am about to pass out and my sugar may be around 74. something I read sounded like it is only dangerously low at 60. I think I might totally black out at 60. At what level should I be concerned.
