Hello, I’m a Type 1 diabetic and recently got the shingrix vaccine to prevent shingles. My reactions was a sore arm but I also noticed for the last three days my blood sugars have spiked and my blood pressure has also gone up. I googled shingrix and blood sugars and didn’t see anything that would suggest the vaccine might cause your blood sugars to rise except that it is a live virus and would my immune system think it has to fight something off? That would make my blood sugars go high!
Just curious if anyone else has had this vaccine and noticed any similar reactions. The pharmacist said reactions last usually 3-5 days. I’m on day 5 today!
