Today I also experienced a spike in blood sugar. I got both the Shingles and Flu vaccine. My fasting level was 115 this AM. Now last 2 readings after 2 hours after dinner 283 . I took it again still high 257.

I got my flu shot yesterday and I can not get my numbers sown... did not go for a walk today because I feel like crap with a low fever if I do not keep on taking Tylenol. Staying on my diet so glas to at least hear someone else has this problem.

After the flu shot the same thing happened to me.  My blood sugar spiked to 204 that normally is less than 150.
