Your Mental Health and Your Blood Sugars
Have you ever felt really stressed out and then your CGM alarm starts blaring or your finger stick shows your sugars are going high, which then caused you to stress out even more? We have all been through stressful situations that are almost identical to this scenario. Have you ever stopped to reflect on how your mental health was impacting your blood sugars? We can't talk about managing your blood sugars without talking about your mental health because they are actually deeply intertwined and play a huge role in diabetes management.
In this episode of the Diabetes Psychologist Podcast, I share 4 reasons why paying attention to your mental health is key to getting your blood sugars in range and discuss why mental health matters for your blood sugars and why blood sugars matter for your mental health.
