(HealthDay News) -- Physical and emotional stress can be problematic for diabetics, as it tends to cause blood sugar to rise.

The American Diabetes Association suggests how to keep stress under control:

  • Find ways to reduce stress, such as by taking an alternate route to avoid traffic, mending problems with a friend or changing to a less stressful job.
  • Engage in regular physical activity.
  • Do something fun, such as taking dance lessons, picking up a new hobby or practicing a craft.
  • Volunteer in your community.
  • Practice relaxation exercises.
