Default Stress and BG

How significantly does stress affect your BG? I had been running consistently in the mid 90s and then have had some significant job stress in the last few weeks and my numbers have been 105-115. I haven't been carefully logging my food, but I haven't changed my diet. Is it more likely that I'm not being careful on carb counting or could stress really affect numbers for a couple weeks?

Mixed answer Yes & No. Yes it does affect some people. No it doesn't effect me. So YMMV I guess.

Yes stress does that to me as well. I would wake up with a good number (80s), then right before lunch if I happened to have to prepare for a big presentation at work that day, my number would jump to 100-110. But when I checked it again after the presentation, it would go back down to my usual numbers.

Those whose problem includes increased gluconeogenesis due to high cortisol will definitely observe this.

I have antibodies but think stress was a precipitating factor. I can get stuck at > 150 for hours to days ... even using insulin.

This may be my case. My docs were thinking this as I also have apnea, which I am treating.

When I wake up stressed my numbers look terrible. Today was the first day I didn't wake up stressed and my number was back to normal - 97.
