Can stress effect blood sugar levels - lowering them? Not diabetic. Usual breakfast of miniwheats giving me reactive hypoglycemia all week.
Stress increases: Glucose. I have never seen a real case of reactive hypoglycemia. The disorder doesn't exist, if you're overweight the symptoms are a natural response to your glucose level returning to normal.

Lose wt if heavy. ...Read more

Depends: Hi. Cortisol (hydrocortisone) in excess (either endogenous = Cushing's syndrome, or exogenous as prednisone) antagonized insulin's effects and can raise blood sugar. When everything's working normally (normal cortisol, or normal replacement in adrenal insufficiency) does not antagonize insulin and sugar in a pathophysiologic way. So really, it comes down to is the glucocorticoid in excess. ...Read more

Light exercise may be helpful. ...Read more
