Yes, b/c flu shots give you a little bit of a virus to make you immune to the real thing. The few days you have the virus can raise your bgs (as if you had a cold or light flu). Time span varies. Some people report one day, others 2 or 3 (kind of like a cold). Mine have tended to vary too.

> Just saw my endo yesterday - he gave me a flu shot. Question - has anyone ever experienced high bg readings after a flu shot? I was over 400 late last night, and still over 200 when I woke up this morning (even though I bolused a usually appropriate amount to bring the 400 down). Just to be safe, I changed my site this morning in case that was the problem, but I was just wondering if anyone else had ever had highs after their flu shot. Thanks!
