Stress And Diabetes

Can stress increase your blood sugar?

Stress can be a major barrier to effective glucose control. It is widely recognized that people with diabetes and stress are more likely to have poor blood glucose control. One of the reasons for this is that stress hormones such as cortisol increase the amount of sugar in our blood.

Constant stress from long-term problems with blood glucose can also wear you down mentally and physically. This may make managing your diabetes difficult.
