Why on earth is my blood sugar rising out of the blue? I discovered it was from stress, dehydration and soap residue.
#1 – Stress
I realized that being under constant stress strongly affects your blood sugar.
You have to find your own way to stay calm. There is no one size fits all to do it.
#2 – Dehydration
I discovered that since I came diabetic that I actually don’t drink enough and have to force myself to drink. It is not that I don’t like water, it is just that I don’t feel thirsty.
#3 – Handwashing With Water Only
Now why on earth would I mention this.
When I first was diagnosed I was told to wash my hands with water before testing my blood sugar and I did. I don’t know why I changed one day to testing after I had washed my hands with a fancy soap.
Well, that was not one of my brilliant ideas. Whatever was in the soap, left a residue that spiked my blood sugar reading.
