Re: [IPk] Insulin resistence?

Hi Pat
Academic conferences (and whole-day meetings) always do weird things to my BG. 
Usually they send it up because I'm sitting around the place. I've even got a 
"meeting" profile now :-) I don't think I ever get adrenalin rushes in 
meetings or conferences though - I must be in the wrong field, they're never 
that exciting!

I'd love an adrenaline meter....it would solve all my problems with 
competitive sport and BGs rising! I've seen programmes where they measure 
people's stress levels throughout the day, which seems to involve spitting on 
a stick which then goes off to the lab. Roll on home adrenalin testing :-)
