I am trying to get over COVID, first symptoms started 9/20 (vaxed twice, boosted once). This was the first illness I’ve had since being Type 1. I was prepared for the high blood sugars–and they were way higher than normal. Lots of stuff in the 230-270 range, which has been almost entirely unheard for me. Well, I dealt with it, and thought things were returning to normal when for a couple of days my numbers seemed to be stabilizing and I wasn’t needing as much insulin.
But now, the past few days the numbers have been super high again. I never eat breakfast, and today at 10:00 a.m. I was 109, two hours later–with no food whatsoever–177. That is just completely inexplicable and unheard of in my experience. It’s been almost a month since my COVID started, and I’m frustrated and just wanting these numbers to end. The high blood sugar is making me feel like I am still ill and fighting an infection, which is an even crappier feeling than the highs themselves.
What are your experiences with abnormal highs and infections, and how long blood sugar goes haywire after an infection? I just don’t know what to expect and when things will stabilizie again, and am worried about long COVID issues.
