No. of Recommendations: 2 3 days ago, I took my test and it said 170 after walking 4 miles around 2 AM. Got up the next day and did a morning test before breakfast and it went up to 194. Looks like I need to walk 2 or 3 times a day to keep it down.

What had you eaten before/after your tests? While exercise will improve your overall health and work on your weight, it by itself is not a BG reduction tool. Your eating habits have to be taken into account. If you exercise and then drink a gatorade to replenish your body fluids, you are just replacing the carbs you burned. If you exercise just after eating dinner, you will have a delayed reading as your meal is broken down over the next 3 hours. You have to look at the big picture, not just the pieces.
