    Hi I had my covid jab on Tuesday and my blood sugars have been high off and on since then ,
    I have no symptoms of illness I have changed pens needles injection sites to no avail .
    Just checked and reading at 25 after eating 3 hours ago . I am taking correction doses . I just wondered if anyone has had the same problem .
    Many thanks

    Hi, I had my 1st covid vaccination 3 days ago. The last two days I have been a steady 10mM BG despite more than doubling my Novorapid (almost no carbo). I suspect it's a body reaction as if during an infection.

    Hopefully will stabilise soon - certainly glad I've had the jab!
