Could Stress Lead To Hypertensive Diabetes?

Just discharged from hospital for esophageal varices..was banded, received sandostatin, 3 units of blood, and 2 of platelets. I am a hypertensive diabetic, 62 y/o w/f with family history of diabetes and liver disease as well as cardiac. I need to know in detail what sort of diet I need to be on and could stress have been a factor. I had quite a significant blood loss. Thanks in advance. YYYY@YYYY

Hello,
Welcome to HCM
I understand your concerns.As you are a diabetic and hypertensive and also as you are having the family history of these,you need to very careful about your daily routines.

You need to manage stress in day to day life.I would advice you to do yoga and meditation daily for half to one hour.Do brisk walking for half an hour daily in the morning.Keep yourself calm.

In diet you need to avoid salty and sugary foods and also fried foods.Eat as much as dietary fibres in the form of green leafy vegetables and fruits.
Hope you are happy with the answer.
