Can someone please explain to me how my pancreas knows when Im doing yardwork? I dont know why this happens but whenever I spend the day doing moderate yardwork, my blood sugar just skyrockets and no amount on insulin has any noticeable effect.
I mean, seriously, wtf?
I do hot yoga weekly. I spend about 150 minutes a week doing sweat inducing bike riding. I stay active at the gym. I do resistance and strength training, I lift heavy weights. My pancreas stays calm and my blood sugar stays within range.
God forbid I go out into the garage on Saturday and touch the lawn mower. I pay for it all friggin day. It’s 830pm and Im sitting here with almost 400 on my CGM. This happens each and every time I do yard work… mow, trim, weed, pool, sweep, rake. (This has been happening all summer long. Doesn’t matter if I eat, shoot, ignore, placate, or drink)
IS it possible my body (as a new diabetic) doesn’t like hot weather? Really, that’s gonna be a deal breaker for me. Does diabetes have a “return” policy? What is going on? I sweat more at the gym, for cryin’ out loud.
