Blood Sugar Changes In Women

Sometimes people wonder if menstrual periods or menopause can affect their blood sugar control. The answer to that is – well, sure, maybe. The fact is that so many things can affect blood sugar control: whether you’re stressed, sick, didn’t get enough sleep that night, ate a lot, exercised a lot, etc. There are so many things that can affect your blood sugar that something like menstrual periods and menopause are just on a long list of things that can contribute. Everyone’s body will respond a little differently and it’s certainly important to keep an eye on trends to see if you can detect a pattern of a blood sugar change because of menopause or menstrual periods – it’s going to depend a lot from patient to patient.
