Re: [IP] Exercise and high bg's

Stephanie's endo said not to exercise if she was over 200 because her bg
would rise. Steph's 8 1/2, and incredible active, so we did some testing and
found that for her, exercise is helpful in bringing down bg unless she is
300 or over, in which case her bg's do start to rise.  I wonder if each
individual responds differently?
