The Effect Of Diabetes On The Rise And Fall Of Blood Sugar Due To Many Thoughts?
, want to ask, if people have diabetes it does not affect the ups and downs of blood sugar because of many thoughts?
Hello Hajrawany, Thank you for the question.
Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease characterized by blood sugar (glucose) levels that are higher than normal. Glucose which accumulates in the blood can cause a number of health complications. Glucose levels are controlled by the hormone insulin which is produced by the organs of the pancreas. The hormone insulin works to bring glucose into the tissues and organs of the body so that it can be used as energy. Diabetes consists of type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, the immune system attacks pancreatic cells (an autoimmune condition) which is responsible for producing the hormone insulin. Because of the low production of the hormone insulin, glucose in the blood cannot be carried into the tissues and organs of the body so that it accumulates in the blood. In type 2 diabetes, the body's cells are not sensitive to the action of insulin so the insulin hormone produced by the body cannot work optimally to control blood glucose levels.
Fluctuations in blood glucose levels can be influenced by a number of factors one of which is the level of psychological stress. High levels of psychological stress that occur continuously can trigger the production of the hormone cortisol in the body. The hormone cortisol can cause glucose formation from proteins in the liver. With this glucose formation, glucose levels in the blood will increase. Therefore, in addition to regulating diet and changing the lifestyle of life (regular exercise, avoiding smoking and consuming alcoholic beverages, losing weight if you are overweight), diabetics are also encouraged to manage stress well. If exposure to high stress levels can cause high glucose levels continuously, the sufferer may need to adjust the dose of medication consumed. Please monitor your blood sugar levels regularly. If your blood sugar levels are out of control even though you are already taking drugs and changing your diet and lifestyle, please consult your specialist in internal medicine for further examination and treatment.
