    Tip of the Week - Stress & Diabetes

    Did you know stress can affect your blood sugar?  Work, family, or financial issues are all sources of stress in life.

    Stress can produce chemicals that increase blood sugar.  Consider your habits when you are under stress.  Do you eat more when you are stressed?  If so, this can also lead to increased blood sugar.

    Follow these tips to reduce stress and control blood sugar.
    • exercise daily to alleviate stress
    • write down what causes stress and take steps to control your behavior when reacting to stress
    • talk with a friend or join a support group to lessen stress
    • engage in a relaxing activity such as gardening or reading when you feel stressed
    Good blood sugar control includes eating right, regular exercise, and limiting stress.

    Q:  My glucose tolerance test was at 105 - how high/low is that compared to acceptable levels?

    A:    It depends on what type of test you had (was it a fasting glucose test or an oral glucose tolerance test?). If it was a Fasting Plasma Glucose test, a glucose level of 100-125...

    In the past, when someone was diagnosed with diabetes, they were told they should not eat sugar.  The thinking was that sugar affected blood sugar more than complex carbohydrates (table sugar compared to a slice of bread).  That thinking has shifted...

    Greg's Exercise Tips

      Exercise Today and Release Endorphins, Lose Weight, and Improve Insulin Sensitivity!

    Consider joining a gym or health club.  Becoming a gym member can help you exercise consistently, especially on the days where outdoor activity is not an option due to weather.  Ask your local health club for a free 2-week pass to evaluate whether it is a fit for you.  Health club staff should be able to introduce you to the equipment (how to use it) and other benefits of the facility.
