Because when the stress of serotonin production is reduced, the ability to increase insulin production is reduced, consequently the hormone insulin is minimal, "he said in a talk show and health seminar" Avoiding Diabetes with Life Free Stress "in Podomoro Pavilion, Saturday (27/1/2018).
Sonia reveals, insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas to regulate or decrease glucose levels in the blood, by helping glucose enter cells that require glucose to live.
"Simply put, insulin keeps one's blood sugar level stable. Well, when we are stressed, serotonin hormone is produced in small amounts, decreased auto insulin, and this reduces its ability to neutralize blood sugar. Because the blood supply insulin deficiency, blood glucose will remain in the bloodstream without being able to enter the cell wall, then there is an increase in blood sugar, "said Sonia.
Sonia further said, to avoid the stress of the way by always thinking positive and iklhas, and doing activities that make happy.
