Why Are Hypoglycemia and Stress Linked?
If there is one thing that is easy to understand, it is the connection to how stress affects hypoglycemia.
Your blood sugar levels determine the gradual onset of hypoglycemia, but what exactly creates low or high blood sugar? The same hormones which are released with stress in your life are the same which determine blood sugar levels. (cortisol is the most famous)
The Reason To Control Stress?
Everyday living, money, job or relationship pressures, if they become burdensome, directly affect your hormones which go on to directly adjust blood sugar levels.
It’s not easy.
- You have to take control of any part of your life which is not balanced.
- It takes years and years of stress (or stress handled incorrectly) to create years of unbalanced blood sugar levels.
- This ultimately leads to hypoglycemia.
- If not controlled, the dreaded diabetes, heart attacks, or stroke can follow .
Stress lasting week-in and week-out, also leads to storage of fat in the abdomen. This is more bad news which can take you on a journey to more serious illnesses. Excess abdominal fat makes it difficult for muscle cells to react to insulin and consequently to the balancing of blood sugar by the liver.
It’s All Down To You
No doctor can solve your stress problems, in fact, he is the wrong person to go to for such matters. A big part of the solution to stress (and subsequent hypoglycemia) is down to you personally.
You will need a plan of action and a series of well laid out guideposts and this can all be found in my e-book “The Recipe to Conquering Hypoglycemia”.
