(HealthDay News) -- Blood glucose is supposed to be regulated by the pancreatic hormone insulin. But for various reasons, the process doesn't work correctly among people with diabetes.

  • Getting insufficient exercise.
  • Having side effects of medication.
  • Having hormonal changes.
  • Being sick.
  • Being under emotional stress.
