After exercise the blood sugar level generally falls down further, or rarely in some people it may raise little bit too. Although normally we expect the sugar level to fall down after exercises but the level can normally raises sometimes, and this happens due to reflex adrenergic mechanism. During exercise there is increased adrenergic out put (hormones like adrenaline & glucocorticoid steroids level raises to meet the body’s demand for glucose & nutrients), and these hormones try to raise the blood sugar levels. Exercise & insulin try to reduce blood sugar level whereas adrenaline & steroids try to increase blood sugar level, if there is more robust adrenergic & steroid response during exercises then the blood sugar level can raise, but as long as the level is within the normal range, it is considered as a normal physiologic response – as in your case. In otherwords as long as the blood sugar level is within normal limit, this is fine, because this is just part of the physiological mechanism, and this is not considered as pathological.
Please let me know if you have any further questions; and if you feel you have received the answer to your question please rate me so that I can receive credit for the time and effort put by me in answering your question.
Okay I see, but this is still a normal physiological response. This is seen in normal people.
