What is Glucose Response To Exercise?

Glucose is the simplest form of sugar, the most basic units of carbohydrates. When you exercise, your muscles need more sugar to supply energy. Exercise may improve cardiovascular fitness and assist in decreasing blood glucose levels. During exercise, having a better glucose homoeostasis is important to regulate the glucose level. The blood glucose level depends on many factors such as your diet, daily activities and how your body controls the blood sugar level.

How It Affects Your Body

The effect of the exercise on your blood glucose level differs depending on the duration and intensity of the exercise. Moderate to intense exercises can continuously reduce your glucose level for up to 24 hours after your exercise by increasing body sensitivity towards insulin.

Endurance training can increase insulin sensitivity and decrease insulin resistance, thus lowering blood sugar level. Muscles are responsible for the 80% to 90% of glucose uptake from the bloodstream which benefits healthy individuals and also diabetic patients.

All in all, Glucose Response To Exercise explores the effects of regular exercises on the glucose levels of your body.

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Dietary Recommendations:

  1. Consuming low glycaemic index meals before exercise will help to maintain stable blood glucose concentrations throughout exercise. Low glycaemic index food includes oatmeal, fruit, dried beans, legumes, and non-starchy vegetables.
  2. Consume an additional 25-30gorday of fiber to your diet as it can assist in managing your blood glucose level. For example, oatmeal contains a great amount of fibre.
  3. Avoid saturated fat such as butter, fatty meat, cheese, cream, coconut oil and ghee. You should also generally reduce the consumption of fat in your meals.
  4. Carbohydrate counting is useful to control the portion of carbohydrates that you consumed. Carbohydrates should only make up 45% to 65% of your total calories per day.
  5. Eat more wholegrains and vegetables.

Supplement Recommendations:

    Lifestyle Recommendations:

    1. Ensure sufficient water intake before, during, and after exercising.
    2. Always remember to check your blood sugar before starting your workout.
    3. In case of a sudden drop in your blood glucose level, be sure to keep a glucose tablet or candy with you.
    4. It is advised that you should go for a 10 to 15-minute walk after your meal instead of sitting down and watching TV. Cleaning up the kitchen or washing dishes is recommended as well.

    Exercise Recommendations:

    1. Studies have found that regular moderate and high intensity exercise improves glucose metabolism.
    2. It's recommended to workout 30min, 5 days a week. You may start with 5 minutes first and increase the duration gradually.
    3. Type of workout recommended for you includes bicycling, fast walk and lap swimming.
