I’ve been fighting an infection off and on since June (ugh), have taken 2 rounds of oral antibiotics, and I haven’t really noticed any impact on my blood sugar levels. Yesterday, I saw my doctor and we decided to try an antibiotic shot this time. Last night as I was going to bed, I noticed on my Libre that my blood sugar was rising. Honestly, I ignored it because I was tired and assumed it was an artificial rise (this sensor hasn’t leveled out yet on accuracy…). But this morning I woke to a fasting level of 145 which is the highest fasting level I have ever had, including during pregnancy when I needed to be on a basal insulin due to resistance.
Is it just the immune response to the antibiotic shot, or the shot itself? I’m not on basal insulin, so I only have Novolog and Afrezza. How would you proceed in dosing to keep levels down throughout the day?
