How I manage blood sugar spikes from exercise while trying to appreciate the rise!

What To Do When Blood Sugar Spikes

It can be frustrating trying to keep blood sugar levels under control. Day by day, they can fluctuate widely, and they’re not always predictable. Although the greatest danger to people with diabetes is when blood glucose gets too low, it’s also important to take action when blood glucose is high. Thankfully, there are steps you can take to help prevent and treat these unexpected spikes. High blood sugar, also called hyperglycemia, often develops in response to too little insulin or other glucose-lowering medication, or too much food. It’s important to address hyperglycemia. Not only can it cause problems like impaired thinking in the short term, it can increase the risk for serious problems like heart disease, kidney damage, and blindness over time. Here’s what you can do about hyperglycemia. On top of tracking your diet and blood sugar, regular exercise is a key part of managing your diabetes. And while any exercise is better than none, certain activities have specific benefits for people with diabetes. 2017 Healthgrades Operating Company, Inc. All rights reserved.

    What does it FEEL like when your blood sugars are high?

    I know what the standard symptoms are for hyperglycemia and MOST of them are also symptoms of pregnany...which I am. So what are some tell-tell signs that your sugars are too high? I am already peeing, drinking, and hungry ALL THE TIME...so those don't count. I am also Moody (did anyone notice the capital M), have leg cramps, and am constantly tired...so those don't count either. I did my 1 hr GTT and FAILED MISERABLY, then did my 3 hr GTT and passed (yay), but am wondering if things have changed.
    Basically, it feels like I just slammed 4-5 Red Bulls...and not in the good way!!
    I never had these issues with my other two kids, but it has been over a decade since I've been preggers...

    Often there are no symptoms to high blood sugar. Other times there are. If your sugar is very high, you will lack energy because the glucose is in your blood and can't get into your muscles. Climbing stairs can feel like you are climbing a mountain.
    Increased thirst is another symptom although it's not one I had. Mention your symptoms to your doctor including your concern about high blood sugar. I was tested for diabetes when I was pregnant and it came back negative, but later when I gave birth to my son, he was over 10 lbs and they said I probably had gestational diabetes at the time.
    I was diagnosed with type II nine years later.

What Does It Mean To Have High Blood Sugar?

What is hyperglycemia? Have you ever felt like no matter how much water or juice you drink, it just isn’t enough? Does it seem like you spend more time running to the restroom than not? Are you frequently tired? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have high blood sugar. High blood sugar, or hyperglycemia, primarily affects people who have diabetes. It occurs when your body doesn’t produce enough insulin. It can also happen when your body is unable to absorb insulin properly or develops a resistance to insulin entirely. Hyperglycemia can also affect people who don’t have diabetes. Your blood sugar levels can spike when you’re ill or under stress. This occurs when the hormones that your body produces to fight off illness raise your blood sugar. If your blood sugar levels are consistently high and left untreated, it can lead to serious complications. These complications can involve problems with your vision, nerves, and cardiovascular system. You generally won’t experience any symptoms until your blood sugar levels are significantly elevated. These symptoms can develop over time, so you may not realize that something is wrong at first. Early symptoms can i Continue reading >>

    I know this is going to come across as crazy as sin, but am I alone in liking the disoriented feeling you get when your blood sugar spikes up or down? I was pre-diabetic, but was able to get my blood sugar back down to a normal level. However when I eat lots of sweets in a day, I still get a disoriented feeling when my blood sugar is high, and I actually very much enjoy it! Anyone else or am I that crazy?

    I hate both feelings, but a high BS is the worst feeling for me. I'd rather have a low I can turn around quickly vs a high I have to struggle with until my insulin takes its course.

    Nope, not me.

    You may be enjoying it now. I doubt you will enjoy the consequences in a few years time if you are doing that regularly.
