Diligent, while stress may affect your glucose level somewhat, the only way you can lower it long-term is by increasing your exercise and decreasing your carb intake. Stress alone will not produce diabetic-level blood tests.

Fortunately, exercise and a low-carb, healthy diet are also the easiest and most effective tools to lose weight. So lucky you, the same two simple and inexpensive practices will help both of your issues!

Diligent, I agree with Judy.  Your best plan is to get more sustained exercise and a better eating plan, one in which you've cut out the breaded food, and food made with flour and sugar.  Eat more vegetables, salads and a palm-size portion of protein.  Your good health depends on what you are doing for yourself because it's not going to come by itself.  I know you're busy but you need to get your health in shape.  Start a food/activity log in which you have one page dedicated to each day.  On that page you write the time and your blood sugar when you get up, what you eat for breakfast and what time, etc.  If you can test your blood sugar during the day, do that even if it's not 2 hours after a meal.  You need to do this so you know what your blood sugar is running during the day and how it relates to what you're eating.  The longer your blood sugar is running this high, the more damage you're possibly doing to your internal organs, including your kidneys, liver and heart, and your eyes.  Can you do this?

Diligent, this is what I suggest because I understand you're busy.  In the evening when you're home, write the date and day on the top of a piece of notebook paper (or use the computer and do this if you can and print it out) and use the page to log what you're eating or what you've eaten, then time and the blood sugar reading a couple of hours later.  If you can't take your blood sugar a couple of hours after eating, then do it randomly in the day if you can.  Certainly do this after dinner.  This will tell you how your body is reacting to the food you're eating and should be a guide for you to either keep eating it or changing what the food is.  Your meter keeps these readings for a couple of weeks but unless you use them to see trends, it's useless information.
