Hi I am new. I have been diabetic since I was 11. I am trying to get started with exercising at a gym but am finding that often my blood sugars are very high after I exercise (14-18 mmol/l) and I worry that exercising is damaging me by causing these high sugars. Why does this happen, is it in fact damaging and how can I avoid it? I find it very hard to get the right sugar level before I start exercising - I have been told that if it is above 13 mmol/l it will just get higher with exercise, but if it is \'perfect\' (between 4-7 mmol/l) I end up hypo and have to eat which cancels out any benefit of the exercise. I am now discouraged with exercising and unsure what to do.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
