Anytime you will do it. So many say they don't have time to exercise. You need to make time. Only you can work out when to work out.
Remember, when it comes to diabetes and exercise:
Check your blood glucose before and after exercise to see how you respond.
It's all about balance. Keep track of what you eat, your meds, and your physical activity. This way, you can make adjustments.
The ADA recommends avoiding exercise if fasting glucose levels are higher than 250 mg/dl (13.89 mmol/l) and ketosis is present, and using caution if glucose levels are higher than 300 mg/dl (16.67 mmol/l) and no ketosis is present. If levels are below 100 mg/dl (5.56 mmol/l) before exercise, have a snack and retest in 15 minutes.
