How much do you think stress affects your blood sugar levels with type 2 diabetes?
for me if i have blood sugar for type 1 also make me stress.. for type 2 maby it can effect my job..
there is evidence that stress does play a role in blood sugar issues, both diabetes and hypoglycemia.
Many other diseases are affected by stress, as well. I have MS, and when I let myself get really stressed out-- those are the times when I can't walk. Literally can't walk. When I calm down, I'm back to normal. (Which for me is a slight limp.)
This is all the proof I need, personally, of a mind-body connection. It just pays to stay calm, as difficult as that is at times!
Hope this helps!
Think of diabetes as balancing a book on your finger tip. Each corner has a level you have to keep in balance or the book falls off. The corners of the book are DIET, MEDICATION, EXERCISE & Lastly STRESS. So yes, high stress alone can REALLY knock you out of whack just the same as eating a huge cake by yourself or not getting enough exercise.
I think always being under stress or living a stressful life will
definitley contrinbute to having high blood sugar levels and may also lead to high blood pressure problems.
A person with diabetes has to combine diet, exercise, and de-stressing activities such as yoga, and/or meditation and relaxation pracitces. I'm sure the blood sugar levels are definitely influenced by a less stressful lifestyle wherever that is possible.
Stress can affect your blood sugars! Trust me I was in a high stress job and after a long day and dealing with my daughters and life my blood sugar would spike over 20 points.
I have found taking a over the counter pill called StressTabs has helped control my stress level and it keeps me even on alot of levels. You can get this at Wal-mart for like 6.00 and it's worth it
Stress will most assured affect your blood sugar levels. It can cause you're levels to go very high.Because, you're pumped up! And if you are one of those people who are,when stressed. Start eating more that makes it worst. And it can also, make you hypoglycemic. And if you are stressed and not eating from not having an appetite. Thats BIG TIME TROUBLE! So, if you let it ,stress can really do you in.Either way.So,I"LL grab an orange juice bottle and my glucometer and start walking.

Once you have Type 2 diabetes, is it true that it can be reversed and you will no longer have...diabetes, and can an accident (such as, slipping and hitting your head) cause blood sugar levels to increase to 400?
