Is Covid Causing A Spike In Type 2's?
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

Shifting gears a little today from my normal (tips) to post up some excerpts from an article I was reading this morning that may mean our little group here might start to balloon in the next few months.

There had been some early data suggesting that Covid may result in higher Type 2 diagnosis since the disease attacks the pancreas, but now almost two years into the mess there has been some time for some solid analysis - so here is a bit

Research at Harvard Medical School found that of 551… read more

You do "know" that the Pfizer Vaccine was "FDA Approved" (not just for emergency use anymore) back last August and just TODAY the Moderna vaccine received "full FDA approval".

So maybe need to stick with a different reason.

And have seen the insert for Tylenol?

I received the booster 8 weeks ago and I still have covid type symptoms, but they have eased a bit, finally. I had half tablespoon of potatoes with 2 eggs over easy, onions, ham for breakfast. Fasting Blood Glucose Number 115, 2 hour 114. I should have had more carbs.

I am still constantly adjusting my right eating. If the symptoms continue to subside, maybe I can eat like I did before the booster.

I will never give up, never surrender, never ever.
You got this.
Have a blessed day.

@A DiabetesTeam Member there is a difference between a "temporary rise in blood sugar" as a result of a shot or a drug that eventually goes away and getting some disease that destroys the ability of the pancreas to produce insulin "forever".

I don't know if Covid Corona Virus causes and elevation is blood glucose but I know that the covid booster did for me. Several weeks my blood sugar was very high after getting the covid booster.

So while if WE get Covid it won't give us diabetes, it can make it significantly worse if it "doesn't kill us". Sigh that just breaks my heart to hear.
My biggest goal has been to come out of this pandemic alive. Very serious we are all a part of a very interesting time in history. I have had people I know die of this,I have had cousins, and three of my siblings catch covid. My oldest sister now has Long Haulers.
My midde son & his wife are Anti Vax, my oldest son is very vocal on body autonomy I respect and love them both and I know it is in their hands not mine) My little family at home..well we are all very proactive in taking the highest care of our health. Chris, Payden & I are all vaccinated & mask wearers.
Staying safe and alive is the name of the game. I know that Covid has caused stress & that for sure has not helped my diabetes.
