Invariably when you start bodybuilding. there is a change in diet, and that will affect the glucose levels, so you will need to reassess what your new diet consists of that may push up the glucose levels. At the time of training, if you are increasing your adrenaline levels, then that may also increase the glucose levels. Whether there is something more unique about your diabetes(i.e you have a slow version of type 1 diabetes) cannot be determined in this forum, and therefore you would need further assessment for this
