Opioid Taper & Blood Sugar

I’ve been in pain management for six months and I’m currently tapering off my medication. I have been able to combat the pain with physical therapy. One thing I didn’t anticipate was blood sugar changes while tapering off opioid medication. The stress on my body has led to blood sugars above 400. Yesterday, I adjusted my basal rate and my blood sugar has been much better. I wanted to share my experience, in case it might help someone else. If I had thought about it ahead of time, I would’ve included my endocrinologist in planning for the taper.

hi @epowell thanks for that! I do notice higher blood sugar with stress and physical pain. I hope you feel better and continue to improve!
