I found this article on exercise and diabetes. It says that exercise is supposed to help lower the numbers. I have been exercising for three weeks now. I have noticed my blood sugar has stayed in the 200 to 300s for the last week. My diet has changed slightly, so I know where it's coming from. Now it's hard to get back down. Here is the article I found though. Thought it might help someone:
Ways to lower blood sugar:
An easy way to lower blood sugar levels is to stay fit and healthy. Regular exercise not only helps lower blood sugar levels, but also helps fight infections. Staying active and taking regular exercise can also help with blood pressure problems. Exercise also helps control the body's weight and regulate cholesterol levels.
Exercisea do not need to be a grueling. Thirty minutes of exercise three times a week, will help to lower blood sugar levels. Walking to the store instead of taking the car is all that may be necessary to provide you with some much needed exercise. Any extra exercise, including working out in a gym, should be discussed with a doctor first if you have irregular blood sugar levels. You can do something light such as arm exercises, ab workouts, help to.
The food that you eat also plays a part in helping to lower blood sugar levels. Low-glycemic foods that are digested more slowly by the body are a better option. High-glycemic foods enter the bloodstream easily and rapidly, causing the pancreas to work harder to produce insulin.
