Hyperglycemia and DKA
Question from Arvada, Colorado, USA:
I have been told that along with stress, pain can cause your body to increase adrenalin which then causes your glucose levels to rise and that illness is also a factor. Is this an accurate assessment?
All true — illness, stress, excitement can all trigger an adrenalin response which raises blood glucose levels.
