The stress level has been off the charts at work the last
3 weeks. The end of last week I started seeing highs during
the morning and afternoon and lows in the late evening and
night. Before then my bgs were fine. On Wednesday I made
a decision that reduced the impact of the stress for me.
The stress is still there and still affects me, it is just
down in a more "normal" range. My bgs have been fine again.
I was really suprised at the lows in the late evening and
night going away with the stress impacting me less. They
were consistent enough I was planning on profiling basals
Thursday and Monday nights. I almost always do a middle of
the night bg so I am sure my bgs at night were low and have
come back up. I am pretty sure it was stress related. Anyone
else notice stress lowering bgs? I am just trying to make
sense of it since I though stress was supposed to raise bgs.
