    Great post! I have always thought that daily work/life stress worsened my control because I was too busy to pay as close attention as when I was less stressed, not because the stress itself led to high BGs. (not necessarily because I cared any less either.) So it’s great to hear that I am not alone! Definitely, though, intense physical stress and even mental stress associated around a physical event (such as a bike race), can cause my BGs to go up! This is why I increase my basal rate a few hours before the beginning of races!

    So after we separate them, are we supposed to eat the wheat, or the chaff? Or maybe we’re supposed to smoke them! As a educator you need to be clearer.

    They never even specify what they mean by “cinnamon” – it can refer to so many different things.

    Please help get the word out on the Phase II Clinical Trials by Dr. Faustman (Harvard, Mass General Hospital). Her website is: FaustmanLab.Org. Learn more about this possible cure.
    Thanks!

    Finally, some validation. My BGs go down when I’m under extreme stress (not daily, traffic kind of stress), and endos always look at me like I’m an alien when I say this.

    At one point in my working carrer, I did an office survey of who almost never got respiratory ailments – especially throughout the winter months – all those who were on the ‘never sick’ list also had a decent daily intake of cinnamon – just because they liked it/ it was the way their mother had prepared some foods/ the basic cultural diet required cinnamon. Blood sugar was never mentioned!
