Question:

i am on metformin &glimipride. after morning exercise the blood sugar(fbs)is 238.how does it increase,is there any effect of exercise on fbs?

Answer:

There can be rises in blood sugar with exercise, presumably mediated by the effect of stress hormones which rise during exercise and in turn raise blood sugar.  I would encourage you to see your doctor or a diabetes specialist or a diabetes educator to help you sort this out.
