Insulin: Insulin is necessary to allow the sugars in your blood to enter cells. If you don't have enough insulin, sugars will be high. Two sources of sugar in the body: from food (many sources in food are snuck in u may not notice- like ketchup, bbq sauce) and from the liver (makes sugar to keep our cells energized when we are not eating). So high bg = not enuf insulin, sneaky carbs, and liver.

Insulin resistance: Stress hormones (cortisol) can make your Insulin less efficient, and if high over the long run, can contribute to obesity, which also makes Insulin less effective. When Insulin doesn't work as well, sugars can rise.
