RE: [IPk] Stress and BGs



Paul - i have seen in many patients that stress really can impact BGLs
but these patients are not on pumps - not that i think it differs in
pump people. A co-worker did a search last week and found there hadn't
been many studies on it. Perhaps something for Bournemouth??? 
Stress tolerance can vary between patients and tolerance also -
perception in a non-free living setting would be difficult to check...
