Stress can be a significant factor in affecting your ability to manage diabetes. It is important to learn to cope with stress when you have diabetes because stress can cause your blood glucose levels to fluctuate. Stress affects the way the body handles insulin and impact the way you manage your condition, negatively. Stress is the body’s way of responding to unpleasant situations. A little stress, doctors say, is good because it can help you use your energy levels and even improve productivity. But too much stress when not managed well may become chronic and in case of Type 2 diabetes, it can misfire and worsen your condition.
In case of stress you may end up neglecting your body, forget to check your blood sugar levels, not eat on time or may end up eating too much, all of which is dangerous for the condition. Another way stress impacts the condition is because it increases the body’s need for energy. And to get that extra dose of energy, your body release hormones that increase the blood sugar levels. People with diabetes suffer because the insulin production in the body cannot keep up with the high blood sugar levels in demand.
Stress is a part and parcel of life but there are ways to manage it and prevent it from impacting your health. Here are a few ways you can handle stress the right way. You must maintain a tight control on your routine – and have a well-balanced combination of diet, exercise and sleep. Good nutrition helps control blood sugar levels especially when you are stressed. Exercise not only helps to burn calories but also stress. Increase your daily dose of exercise to let out the stress. Most importantly, you must rest well and ensure you get sufficient sleep.
One way to deal with stress is to have coping methods in place. Have a positive attitude and snap out of negative thoughts that trigger stress. Keep yourself occupied with things that make you happy so that you are distracted from attracting thoughts that are stressful. Practice meditation because it can work wonders with relieving the body and mind from stress.
Consider having stress management support in place. Talk to your friends and family and share your problems and feelings and ask for support.
