Health Tip: Manage Stress to Keep Diabetes in Check

Physical and emotional stress can be problematic for diabetics, as it tends to cause blood sugar to rise.

The American Diabetes Association suggests how to keep stress under control:

  • Find ways to reduce stress, such as by taking an alternate route to avoid traffic, mending problems with a friend or changing to a less stressful job.
  • Engage in regular physical activity.
  • Do something fun, such as taking dance lessons, picking up a new hobby or practicing a craft.
  • Volunteer in your community.
  • Practice relaxation exercises.
