At the end of June I decided to give up alcohol entirely, and went Keto. This is been great, except, when I have tried to do cardio my blood sugar skyrockets. A couple of weeks ago, out of sheer curiosity, I decided to try cardio when I had a morning low (65 or 70). After seven minutes of cardio, my Dexcom read 115 with the arrow facing straight up.
Has anyone else had to deal with this? I’ve looked online and I’m starting to feel like a real freak. And yes, I know the obvious answer is probably “take insulin”. It takes a lot of insulin to get me back down once that arrow is straight up, and usually ends in a roller coaster kind of day for me. I’m just wondering if anyone else deals with this.
