42 Factors That Affect Blood Glucose
As a person with type 1 diabetes after 17 years living with diabetes, I’ve learned that there are all kinds of factors that affect blood glucose, many of which are impossible to control, remember, or even account for.
Based on personal experience, conversations with experts, and scientific research, here’s a list of 42 factors that affect blood glucose. I’ve provided arrows to show the general effect these 42 factors have on my blood glucose, or the effect they seem to have on blood glucose based on research.
However, not every individual will respond in the same way, so the best way to see how a factor affects you is through personal experience – check your blood glucose more often with a meter or wear a CGM and look for patterns.
