Stress and Diabetes
Major mid-life stresses may raise your risk of developing diabetes.

Dutch researchers who surveyed some 2,000 people found that those who endured the most crises such as the death of a spouse or financial upheaval, were 60% more likely to develop adult-onset diabetes than those with few stresses in their lives.

It's unknown what impact counseling or stress-reduction techniques might have on the development of the disease. (Diabetes Care, 2/00)
