Can a visit with friends help you manage your blood sugar?

Well, no… it can’t. At least I can’t find any medical evidence to back up that assertion.

But last night, the stars aligned, we had a chance to have a couple of long-time neighbors over for dinner, and I felt great. We ate and talked, laughed, discussed their kids and my parents, and what we all thought we’d be doing in twenty years.

It was one of those impromptu gatherings on a perfect evening that helps the stress of the day and the week release like air from a balloon. What can be wrong about that?

My blood glucose level before our meal: 115 mg/dL

My blood glucose level after everyone went home: 118 mg/dL

Can a visit with friends help you manage your blood sugar?

It can’t hurt.

    I always find my BG’s are generally better when I am on holiday, I wonder if it’s anything to do with being relaxed?
