  I have type 2 diabetetes for 3 years now as well as panic attacks for 12 years now and it seems like when my anxiety is running high my blood suger go's up as well, I normaly run around 80 to 130 but when my stress is high it tends to go up to 150 and higher can stress really do this even if I haven't eaten?

In a word? Yes. I just read a study on stress and diabetes. Unfortunately, it's one of our worst enemies. The solution seems to be EXERCISE. Therapy is helpful ... but can take a long time. Anti-anxiety drugs wreck their own havoc with diabetics. Unfortunately (again) exercise seems to be IT. I tend to be anxious as well and know that people have recommended exercise to me for YEARS before I became a diabetic.

I guess if there's a magic bullet out there, exercise would be IT!

Good luck rearranging your life style ... I find it soooooooo very challenging but necessary as well.
