Exercise stimulates the liver to release glycogen. In all likelihood, this is an accurate reading rather an erroneous reading.
Can high lactate cause a high glucose 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.
