<< Question - has anyone ever experienced high bg readings after a flu shot?
This would not be unusual if your immune system is creating antibodies to
protect you from the flu.  It would do the same if your body was trying to
fight off another infection,  With the flu soht, the problem should be limited
to a day or two.  You did the right thing to take a bolus and to change the
site anyway.  Hope you feel better.
