I have recently been employed at a prison and was stuck on night shift for 12 to 16 hours, one break 30 min. Had to leave sugars 300 plus. left and now down to 70 to 150 regularily. Job less but living. That is more then the Money, God is my provider and will supply all my needs ! I look forward to a new job and a change of employment type, I love people and being involved, so look forward to that and all God has in store. Be Blessed !

Or in the case of lovemaking it could lower your Blood Glucose (BG) in that the activity acts as exercise, it gets one's heart a thumping and breathing heavy. Exercise lowers BGs and sometimes lowers them too low even.

I guess whether the sex raises or lowers one's BG levels depends on the relationship with the partner. If it is done in a loving relationship and there is "sweet release" in lovemaking, it is more like exercise. If the relationship is strained the emotional asects stress the person which affects the BG levels also.

It's crazy how much stress affects your BG! Taking away those little stressors can add years to your life(in my opinion). Good luck with the new job!

Glad you made the right choice to leave your job. Health is more important and you will find a job that's less stressful.

You can get a new job, but you cannot get better health when the health has gone, it seems. I believe you made the correct choice, Charlie!
