From Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA:
My 12 year old son recently started having allergy symptoms to the pollen outdoors. His symptoms are sneezing, stuffy nose, and itchy eyes. He takes one Claritin Redi-Tab a day, but his blood sugars have risen. Do allergy symptoms cause an increase in blood sugars?
Yes. Any condition which increases the metabolism rate (illness/stress) can put up blood sugars.
