Re: observation re: exercise
That is really interesting. I am glad to hear it from a Dr.
Most often, I find excercise drops my glucose levels immediately, with the odd case where it raises them.
I had read that the effects on insulin sensitivty lasted many hours after excercise and as much as 48 hours. This seems to match what the Dr is saying so it's good to get confirmation.
PS : I to have periods where my fasting and PP numbers are a bit higher. This has happened so many times in the last 2 years, I kind of ignore it and they always return to normal at most a week later. Infections can do this. An oncoming cold. I tooth infection...but they always come back within a week. At first it used to drive me nuts. Now, when I see a bad fasting number 2 days in a row, I put my meter away, watch the carbs a bit more and check a week later. They always come back. When I say bad number I mean 10 or so above normal.
