My son has had type 2 diabetes for about two years now he is on metformin. He takes it twice a day. We have completely changed his diet and get him to exercise as much as possible. It is winter now so we go to the gym and he has a trainer.
About three weeks ago we all got sick with covid. I tested positive. My son's glucose went up to 200 while he was sick. We are well over the virus now but his numbers are going from 160 to 180 and today it was 191. I had a doctor's appointment last week for myself so I asked his doctor about the increase and he said that the virus would raise his levels. Good thing we are vaccinated.
His glucose is normally between 120 and 130. The last time his A1C was checked it was 6.4 it went up a little it was 6.2. He is still coughing but seems to be over the virus. Should we wary or just wait???
Hi @climberman, thank you for opening this discussion. I'm glad to hear you're both recovered from the virus. Let me tag some other members so they can weigh in.
Hi everyone, how are you doing?
Have any of you had COVID? If so, did you experienced raised blood sugar levels in the weeks that followed? How long did it take for it to stabilize again? If you haven't, have you heard of this happening? What would you recommend?
