Stress Awareness Month has been held every April since 1992 to increase public awareness about both the causes and cures for our modern stress epidemic.

Goal: To lower blood sugar through minimizing stress and anxiety.

Both research and experience clearly demonstrates that stress (good or bad) can raise your blood sugar! Evaluate what might be causing stress in your life, either good stress or bad stress, and consider ways that you can deal with it.

HOW STRESS HORMONES RAISE BLOOD SUGAR

Emotional stress (fear, anxiety, anger, excitement, tension) and physiological stress (illness, pain, infection, injury) cause the body to secrete stress hormones into the bloodstream. For those without diabetes, the stress-induced blood sugar rise is followed by an increase in insulin secretion, so the blood sugar rise is modest and temporary. For those of us with diabetes, however, stress can cause a significant and prolonged increase in the blood sugar level.
