Vaxination affect you as diabetic

Hannah – so sorry to hear about your highs. Just read the other day ( Mayo clinic info) that CONSISTENT highs – over 300 — should alert you to possible ketoacidosis. So do notify your endo, see what they say. ( I had gone over 300 a number times, but not consistently---- still, this number has me scared and I will watch my numbers closely.) Easy to fix a low, unpleasant though it is.
Thank you for sharing the information.
Be well!

Hi there! Yes, my endocrinologist nurse just reached out to me. My endo was just told it seems to be affecting Type 1’s more, so to add 5 carbs our meals. Hopefully, this will help it from rising too high and help out by normalizing it. It seems it has been affecting them from 7-10 days! I hope mine blows over soon because this Saturday will make 7 days.

Happened to me too but it was over the next day. No worries. Feeling safer!

I got my third full dose of Moderna yesterday. It was a rough night, but not as severe as after the second dose. I had aches, chills, sore throat and tossing and turning, but no headache this time. I’ve slept almost around the clock, except for meals. My BG has been between 100-140 the entire night. No extra insulin needed. It’s really bizarre that my CGM stayed pretty quiet last night.

First shot of Moderna, had no problems. Second dose was like I had the flu. That night I was shivering under every blanket in the house and a heating pad. I fell asleep, then woke up a few hours later overheated. I kicked everything off and fell back asleep. A few hours later, I woke up to use the bathroom. As I stood up from the toilet, I passed out. I remember bouncing around the bathroom like a pinball before falling on and then off the side of the toilet. I came to to my partner frantic outside the bathroom, wondering what just happened. I was a little sore, but broke a chunk out of the toilet tank and left a hole in the wall from the lid hitting it.

I’d rather go through all that than die of COVID. But I wish there had been more research on the effect the vaccine has on Type 1’s and have been given some warning to the severe side effects. I could have taken more precautions. I’m really lucky I didn’t hit my head. I reported what happened to the CDC and said I’d get a call, but I never heard from them.

Had my first and second doses of Pfizer between February and March last year with no issues. Walked about 3 miles to get my booster at the end of September. Walked 3 miles home had lunch and then about 4 miles more. No issues other than a sore arm

. Your numbers are correct, that is what happened, I now have my booster, also Moderna, and insulin requirements have not returned to what they were. Someone suggested B1 and B7, I am taking them now, 2 weeks, and there has been some reduction in insulin , it is now about double what I was taking. Robert Osthues T1D 66yrs.
