    Anyone else had there booster and has it affected your sugar levels? I was fine with my first 2 jabs, but since my booster my levels have been running high.

    I have not had my booster but I did have my third dose of vaccine a couple of weeks ago and yes my blood sugars have definitely been affected I will be having my booster in about six months from now and dread to think what a fourth jab may do guess I will find out in April.

    As a T2 I had no bgl problems with my first two vaccinations, I can get my booster vax sometime this month. It will be interesting to see if I get a reaction out of the third one.

    Nearly 3 weeks since my third jab, my blood sugers have just started to get back to normal, slightly quicker than my first covid jab, thank goodness I have my pump and cgm to help control my blood sugers

    It seems different people react very differently.
    Our friend had a full day in bed yet my wife had nothing at all.
    Peter03 below looks to be settling after 3 weeks.
    Very peculiar.
    Best of luck with it.

    I’ve had a booster, T1. Yes, I needed more insulin to keep blood sugars more or less ‘right’; I took it as a sign that my immune system was reacting so I should be pleased. It was more concerning when they rose again five days after husband returned from a stay away to look after our older grandson over half term.
