Stress can elevate blood sugar since the hormones our body makes to fight stress can also cause blood sugar to rise. Here's an excellent way of reducing that stress.

My type 1 son is sometimes stressed at school and leaves with slightly elavated Blood sugar. Once he relaxed, drinks water, and eats a no carb snack he is usually fine. Stress is a major consideration.

If this is true, I'm shocked my blood sugar hasn't been through the roof this week. I ended up in the urgent care after having a migraine for four days. They gave me some muscle relaxers that I was worried might affect my sugar. Everything is normal, though.

This explains a lot. I have stuck with my diet and take my medicine like I should yet my levels are up. Yep, lots of stress right now. I'm trying to get rid of it and hoping the cause of it will soon be behind me.

Certainly, by just about cutting out carbs, processed carbs in particular, my blood sugar readings have improved (as a type 2 diabetic). I have the occasional treat, but for the most part don't each much carbs anymore.

Diets are expensive. I'd rather learn how to cook what I can afford. How many people was this tested on? I'm really getting tired of the experimental literature on this site.

i found out i was T2 Diabetic the day after my first heart attack 12/22/2014. I was also simultaneously diagnosed with Coronary Artery Disease . It was all a fantastic, gigantic surprise! I like to say having a heart attack saved my life. I now follow a strict diabetic diet. Pre heart attack womens size: 22, A1c 11.5 Current womens size 10, A1c 6.0. This whole set of circumstances changed my life for the better, believe it or not.

Learning to truly TASTE the ingredients - not all of the gunk poured on or coated on is key. And lots of different seasonings and herbs to enhance. Make the MOST of what you eat. OH OH OH... and learn to eat more slowly and savor what you eat. After years of 30 minute lunch breaks at work it took me quite a while to eat more slowly but I am satisfied with less and enjoy it far more.

I get really bad cramps in my thighs it hurts so bad. They can last a long time. I found that drinking pickle juice helps stop them in a few min. I have been doing this for years.
05/24/2017 at 00:59
Yellow mustard, pickle juice and or tonic water are what I use when these horrible thigh spasms hit. Sometimes they feel like my muscles are tearing off my bones... terrible.
05/24/2017 at 15:26
I am a person that gets severe muscle cramps. My legs will go solid from groin to toe. And it,s very painful. I have been known to sit in the bath in the Early hours of the morning in cold water until the cramp subcides. I also have low kidney function. But i,m on quinine for the cramps. But in my job you are constantly on your feet all shift.

My son passed away going on 10 years in August a low blood sugar and a seizure and he suffocated in his pillow. So if you question for a second getting a dog don't. If I would have known about them back then I would have bought one. He struggled with his for years, guess he doesn't now..... Prayers go out to all of you struggling with it.
05/23/2017 at 21:49
My son is 14 and diagnosed just over a year ago, I check his sugars in the middle of every night no matter what they are going to sleep, I worry already about when he's older and moves out 😢

The kids with parents doing this are very lucky. My parents never did a thing and kicked me out of home a few years after I was diagnosed in 1982. I couldn't even afford new syringes back then let alone see my endo for a very long time.

Oh how true, the last thing I want to do is correct a low when I am feeling full from the last meal. So very hard to do. I just gag and force it down but it is either that or get so sick real sick. No matter how diligent one is, things happen delayed meals, etc. Sometimes it can't be helped.
05/23/2017 at 23:07
Or when you've eaten to much something (Ice cream, pizza, whatever) and over cover it but your still soooo full you could die and you have to eat more 🙄

We're all different, so take time to work out what suits you. I too like some comments made, have found that my apetite has shrunk (along with my waistline), and do struggle these days to eat a plate of food. My GP (Doc) suggested 5 snack size meals instead of 3 main meals. I do not find I get hungry, but do feel, I have packmen rumaging around inside me hunting for something, which is my signal ;-)
05/23/2017 at 03:18
I am type 1, and my appetite isnt that large , so for me I dont get angry at all if it is a tiny portion, or if I need to skip something because it doesnt fit into my eating plan.

Does anyone overdose on insulin just to get rid of the crappy feelings high blood sugars cause. I do and I've been battling out of control diabetes since I had brain cancer surgery to remove the tumors and my diabetes out of the 29 years I've been a type 1, the years after my surgery has been the worst. I now take a anti seizure medication and a list of other fun prescriptions. Any pointers or input would help save my life.
