    Hi, Thank you for many great takeaways from this episode. I am an endurance runner and T2 diabetic. I wear a CGM and work with a sports performance dietician who focuses on stable blood glucose for the best performance and overall health. Very few people are aware that blood glucose can rise during high effort exercise. Long easy runs usually do not cause a spike for me. But higher intensity and even warmer temperatures where my HR is higher will cause spikes. In fact, my most recent endocrinologist looked at my CGM data and accused me of forgetting that I ingested sugar before my runs with spikes. I’ve learned that this kind of spike is a different physiological response then one driven by ingesting carbs. You mentioned in todays episode this response being normal. I was wondering what your thoughts would be as to how exercise induced spikes effect overall AiC. As I run with a CGM for the first time in the warm weather season, I’m wondering if my AiC will increase due to these spikes. I’m better understanding of this effect to address it with my doctor, who doesn’t understand (or believe it)
