Question:

From Columbus, Georgia, USA:

My 20 month old son was 16 months old when he was diagnosed. How will immunizations affect his blood sugars?

Answer:

I know no generalized concerns with immunizations and type 1 diabetes. The "stress" and pain of a shot, or a mild associated illness, might cause the glucose readings to go up for a few days.
