Side effects are weight gain due to craving for comfort type foods, loss of bone density, poor wound healing and thyroid output. It can also affect memory, blood pressure and raises blood sugar, plus it lowers the blood alkalinity making it acidic (low PH).

You should get more exercise to relieve stress, more relaxing hobbies like reading, writing and mediation (or just relaxing). Also you should detox the body along with taking a supplement of Vitamins and Colloidal minerals for the 74 trace minerals. These have chromium and aids in insulin sensitivity and which is normally deficient in pre-diabetics.
