Here are some great tips from the doctor on being mindful and keeping anger and stress under control.
Has stress got you down? Well don't let it. Besides the obvious fact that you feel miserable, it's also no good at all for your health!
Diabetes, although not caused by anger, may be exacerbated by anger. Increased levels of cortisol, resulting from the “fight-flight” response associated with anger, can impact blood glucose levels as well as decrease the immune system.
These findings suggest that psychosocial function and ability to cope with stress may play an important long-term role in etiological pathways for type 2 diabetes.
