I answered other because I tested positive for the virus, but don’t believe the test was accurate. I have a cold. That’s all. And I have not had any significant changes in my blood sugars.
I had COVID-19 and reduced my insulin intake because I felt bad so i did not eat. I have been on injections for over 50 years and my A1C is 6.7. During the 10 day quarantine I ran low grade temperature, felt yucky, and very fatigued. Four months later I suffer from dizziness. Good news – I got my vaccine.
No, but honestly I didn’t eat a lot while I had the more “serious” symptoms. So my sugar was actually really stable while I had covid.
If you have T1D and have had COVID-19, did you notice any impact on your blood sugar? Cancel reply

Haven’t had Covid but had the first dose of the Oxford/AstraZenica vaccine three days ago. No problems with the vaccination but interstitial glucose levels raised the day following and a couple of days after. Guess it is a sign the body is mounting a response.
