    I've only been Diabetic for 4-1/2 years (Pancreatectomy & Auto Islet Transplant to Liver) and must admit I do not know enough. I probably don't even know what questions to ask.
    My question is this: Can your emotions affect your blood sugar levels -- make them go high for no other apparent reason~?
    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Definitely. For that matter, almost all physical influences have some sort of effect on our body.

    Stress increases cortisol levels which can increase blood glucose levels. Be sure, however, that the high blood glucose are not being caused by poor health habits ( i.e. food choices, skipping meds, etc) or, you have an infection like a cold or wound.
