i am on metformin &glimipride. after morning exercise the blood sugar(fbs)is 238.how does it increase,is there any effect of exercise on fbs?


There can be rises in blood sugar with exercise, presumably mediated by the effect of stress hormones which rise during exercise and in turn raise blood sugar.  I would encourage you to see your doctor or a diabetes specialist or a diabetes educator to help you sort this out.
