Following my first AstaZeneca vaccine back in April, I had 5 weeks of marked insulin resistance and ever since then I’ve had sporadic episodes of the same lasting anywhere from 24 to 72 hours. Wednesday evening just gone, I got that familiar woozy feeling that’s accompanied each episode and, sure enough, shortly after, my blood sugar started going up and no matter what corrections I threw at it, it remained out of range (low double figures in mmols). My average total daily dose is 30 - 35 units (Novorapid) but yesterday my pump recorded a TDD of 87 units!
It was around 3am this morning that I started to see some return to normality and, right now, whatever process was causing the resistance seems to have petered out. I’ve read some accounts of vaccine-related issues on threads on this forum and on other forums but was wondering if anyone here has experienced this same problem?
One thing is for certain, I’ll never again have the AstaZeneca vaccine. If it was the only thing on offer, I think I’d rather take my chances without anything than experience this unpleasantness again.
