No: Just stressing out can raise your blood glucose. Why not get back to that intense aerobic-fitness-focused lifestyle and if you do have a genetic risk for diabetes, keep it at bay until you're maybe 100 years old?

No. It does not: Repeated testing by your physician checking glucose and hgba1c can help determine if you are or not.Best wishes.
