Exercise stimulates the liver to release glycogen. In all likelihood, this is an accurate reading rather an erroneous reading.
Google is not being my friend in trying to get an answer to what I thought was a possibly simple question. All I get are medical articles for which I do not have the education to interpret. It was my understanding that blood sugar levels are supposedly reduced by exercise. However, I have noticed that mine increases, especially if I have I have gone so far as to achieve “runners high” (usually though using a push mower on a steep yard.) I have recently read about mitochondrial saturation causing an increase in blood lactate levels and I am simply wondering if elevated lactate levels can be erroneously read as elevated glucose by inexpensive “no coding” blood glucose meters. Thank you in advance for anyone that provide and insight.
