Bp + Exercise = High Blood Glucose Levels ?
I have been following BP diet for a few months now. I recently started noticing that my workout sessions have became more tiring. I feel extremely tired , shaky, maybe even a bit nauseated after my workouts. I'm not diabetic and Im generally healthy.
I decided a couple of weeks ago to try to get to the bottom of this, so I got a glucose / ketone meter.
This morning I woke up as usual, made my BP coffee (2 cups coffee, 1 tbsp MCT, 1 tbsp butter) then a couple of hours later went to the gym. I had an intense basketball session. Maybe about 20 minutes or so , or a bit longer. during which I was drinking water with some pink salt.
I came home and since I wasnt feeling ok I checked my blood sugar and found it to be 7.4mmol / L which is 134mg/dl. Ketones were 0.2 mmol/L. I tried to lookup normal values and this seems to be much higher than Normal values? Am I correct? is this normal?
Has anyone experienced anything similar?
I had a meal a bit later, Whey, Coconut milk, couple tbsp honey, blueberries and my blood sugar is around 8.3mmol/L (150mg/dl).
I am starting to wonder what is going on and if this is related to my adernals or something along these lines. This has been a weird experience.
Ever since i started BP i encountered another health issue which seemed to be really weird. not sure if its BP related or not but if you guys are interested or want to take a look i can share more info.
PS : here is something that I found while researching. I wonder if it is related.
Thanks in advance for the help.
