GlucoMenu® Tip of the Day:
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.
Good blood sugar control includes eating right, regular exercise, and limiting stress.
