I was diagnosed type 2 about 4 weeks ago and have managed to consistently got my levels down to between 4.5 and 6.5 since then by cutting out a lot of carbs from my diet. I am 34, not overweight and have always been active and fairly sporty but my diet I have to admit has probably let me down. Although not anymore as the perk of this condition is it has made me far more healthy than when it comes to food than I have ever been. I am a little concerned though as hockey season has started again and as something that I have done for over 20 years I do not want to stop. My issue is that after I have played my levels spike (15.6 and 10.4 straight after playing), is this normal? I know that Adrenalin can affect levels and I am pretty competitive!! I do find that my levels drop to normal within and hour but the problem then is that they continue to drop to hypo range! Before diagnosis I think I had this problem as quite often an hour and a half after playing I would have what I know now is hypo symptoms which I would treat by binging on sweet treats until I felt normal. I have a sandwich now and in a way pre-diagnosis experience has actually helped my with hypos but my question is has anyone else had the same issue after high intensity exercise? I do not plan to give it up but wondered whether there is any way of reducing the spikes or preventing the hypos?
