Blood Sugar

BS really high after 2nd Moderna shot.


Checked two hours after a small sandwich at lunch. 200 would have been high normally.

I just had my 2nd shot on Tuesday. No implications for BG. But I did get really tired the next day I could barley stay awake. Some people are reporting highs, though. I never get strange BG from illness, but I know that some of you are sensitive to that.

Bump up the basal?

I think it’s interesting how much reactions vary. I had high blood sugars after my first (Pfizer) shot. I remember sitting outside after dinner the day after my shot and being surprised when my dexcom started alarming with a 254, double arrow up. Dinner was salmon and broccoli, so not high carb. I struggled with that for about a week.

I made sure I had a sick day plan for my second shot, extra insulin, etc. I got that second shot last week, and…nothing. My blood sugars were normal. Go figure.

I got my second shot on wed, moderna. I barely noticed it.
Then 24 hours later I felt like crap. My skin hurt my arm hurt. My sugars went whacko.
I woke up in the middle of the night feeling better.
It’s weird how these things go.
