So I have really bad poison ivy right now. I'm going to the doctor today. I've noticed that my blood sugars have been running high (in the 200's mostly) despite eating normal foods. Has anyone experienced a higher blood sugar when they had poison ivy? I know being sick does this to me, so I wondered if this was possible.
i would assume it's due to your body trying to fight the poison ivy. any time you have a wound that's healing or an infection, your bg will most likely run high, even if you're eating normally and taking correct amounts of insulin, it's the additional stress on your immune system that can do it.
