    Why does my blood sugar levels rise when I do heavy exercising?

    I take gliclazide 30mg and sitagliptin 100mg in the morning before I have my breakfast.
    My blood sugar levels (BSL) was 6.3mmol before I did some heavy exercising. When I finished my exercise I tested my BSL and it had risen to 10.1mmol. Why does this occur and what should I do to prevent this from happening when I exercise again? This sometimes also happens at night time. When I go to bed my BSL is fine but when I wake up it is sometimes around 8mmol or higher. Why does this happen?
