I suffer with Ibs which has been bad the past few weeks. The only way I get some relief is to take immodium! I've been getting yellow diarrhoea (sorry to gross you out). I've been extremely stressed and suffering with my anxiety the last few months.. I've been so tired which I've put down to the constant toilet issues. Yesterday before my tea I felt shaky and weak. I'd not been the loo in over 24 hours (no2) so wasn't tired due to that. I'd been very anxious all day though and had a panic attack. I decided to take my blood sugar as and was Suprised it was 6!this was before eating. I had my food then tested after 2 hours and it was 7.8. I don't know if this is normal for me. When I bought the monitor about a year ago I'm usually 5.4 before food but never tested after food as I was reassured by the reading. So my question is... Can stress in a non diabetic cause higher reading's? I've ran out of strips to test myself. I did test myself on my dad's this morning before food which read 6.3!!! I felt sick and nervous before taking it as I'm now stressing about having diabetes. My worry is that I have a problem with my pancreas with all the diarrhoea and tummy troubles I'm having. I had liver blood test about a month ago which were fine. The only real symptoms I have related to diabetes is tiredness and larger amounts of urine. I'm drinking more, not due to being thirsty but due to the worry of getting dehydrated from the diarrhoea. I can have it 6 times a day! It's usually bad in the morning when my anxiety is at its worst. I've been the docs so much with my anxiety and ibs that I'm now reluctant to go about this. I'm going to monitor it at home when I get the strips but just wanted to know if stress will make it rise as I'm now anxious about taking the test.
I'm 36 and not over weight.
