I just started doing TRX and Zumba at my gym and post exercise my blood sugar is usually 162. Pre ex it is usually around 120. I am type 2 diabetes controlling with diet and exercise only. Is this normal or healthy for me. It goes down to normal within 30 min or so. What is the best kind of ex for diabetics? Thanks KW

I would consider checking this out, Dr. Bernsteing book. http://www.amazon.com/Dr-Bernsteins-Diabetes-Solution-Achieving/dp/0316167169/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1319942638&sr=8-14

With those kind of numbers above, it's time to get back on Metformin.

I am eating whole grains and organic foods lots of fish and chicken occasional beef lots of veggies. I went on the "30 day diabetic cure" this is a book written by a doctor: Dr.Stefan Ripich. I went on this diet 3 months ago and was able to go off my metformin. I have lost 16 lbs and feel great. I want to lose another 10 lbs. I am going to be 53yo next month. I have always done some kind of ex but this is the first time I have done TRX and really enjoy it.

You need better BG control. Depending on what you're doing now, you may need medication. Your diet should be lower carb, perhaps not ketogenic, but low enough to lower your fasting BG under 100 and preferably around 90. Your pre and post numbers are both high.

I would go see an endocrinologist. Get your A1c done. See what you can do with diet and exercise. If you can't bring your BG lower, it's time to go on medication.

It's always difficult to say what the BEST anything is. My thought is that, for those who are physically able and prepared for it, high-intensity interval training is best. However, I would never say that it's best for you. For those who aren't quite ready for it, I imagine that type of exercise could be really rough and even damaging.

What is your diet like at the moment, if I may ask?
