    I'd go so far as to say every body is different. One person's intense exercise may raise their bg but lower someone else's.
    Test and test again
    It might also change over time as bldies, muscles and sugars change

    Recently I was able to get back to weight-lifting at the gym. Back in March this caused my bg level to drop. 4 months and about 8lbs later, the exercise puts my bg levels up. But as I drop weight (mine not the exercise) the increase is gradually getting less. I put weight on around my waist first and this seems to be a good source for my liver to add glucose. I understand that the liver receives stimulation from the pancreas when glucose levels drop so part of this organ is working!
