High Blood Sugar Level Secondary to Viral Infection
Patient : Hi, I am a type 2 diabetic (12 years now). Recently, I was sick for a couple of weeks with a virus. My glucose levels were elevated as sometimes happens with illness. The fever is gone now, but I still have some coughing. My glucose levels are not AS HIGH but still running higher than before the illness. Is this something that happens or has something permanently changed? I am also right before my period. I take metformin 850 twice daily.
