even a b it if stress seems to make Dd go high, just wondering if were the only ones
Yep, stress sends ds very high. When he took his TAKS test for math, he stayed over 300 for the entire time--no ketones, came down by tiny increments even though we were doing a high temp basal and big corrections. Got him home, checked him, and he was perfect. He took the reading TAKS the next day and was perfectly fine for the whole day. It was the stress of knowing that he struggles in math that caused him to be so high! So frustrating!!!
Yep, my dd pitched in a game for the first time Saturday with no knowledge of it before the game and by the end of the inning she was 389! She also went skyhigh at her first gymnastics game as well. Testing does not bother her as much but those solo gigs sure do.
Not only does stress send her high but at night I can see residual stress from the day come out in her sleep. So on days with alot of tests ... I know to watch her a little more that night.
Oh yeah! I sometimes wonder what came first? The stress or the high BG
Emotional stress is more likely to send Liv's BG low.
J is an odd duck. Stress or excitement makes him drop like a rock.
we need lots of stress. For instance, a test at school will not do it. A test that he's having trouble with will.
Well, I have the joy of stress doing both! So I didn't vote!
Low grade stress makes her run lower. So, a test in school, an annoyance at home, stuff like that.
High grade stress makes her shoot to the moon. So, a big fight, a big game, a test she is extremely worried about, a big dance, and even having a few friends over - the excitement just sends her high.
Yes it can and does. Usually in a situation like a big game, for example when he is starting pitcher or something like that. Just saw a 300 plus this weekend in that situation; came down to 59 shortly after the game....
You have to watch for the crash and be careful how you treat the higher number.
Most definitely - stress sends Benny high.
Most recently, when my grandma passed away, we could not get his numbers in range the entire day of the wake and funeral and a good portion of the next day. Stress was really the only thing I could attribute it to.
A lot of upsetting 'stress' will send Rachel high.
Anticipation of an exciting event however will drop her so quickly!
Stress affects my blood sugar, but it can make me both high and low... ugh.
Stress or anticipation of an event will make her soar, then plumet.
Charlie goes high or low from stress so I didn't vote
