Today I had a couple of readings that I can't make sense of. I planned on mowing the lawn, and wasn't sure how the activity would affect my blood sugar. I was especially curious because I had a very light lunch and was mowing before dinner. So I took a reading before I got started: 108.
Then I mowed the lawn. It only takes me from 45 minutes to an hour to mow, depending on what all I do. That is, it's not a huge yard. After i was done, I took a shower and then another reading: 130.
It went up? I thought exercise could cause it to drop. Did I test too soon? Is there an amount of time that I should wait after I'm done?
My (very supportive) wife reminded me that the only thing I did before I went out was to take a Zyrtec for my allergies. Could that explain the rise?
Have any of you experienced this?
I appreciate any / all feedback!
