Blood sugars do go up. Be very careful with your diet. Let your endocrinologist know about this, they adjust your meds accordingly. Very important to check with Endo whenever new meds start.
If you are taking a small dose pack. This is temporary and you will be fine. As it is only for a few days. If it is long term, Endo remains the key. I have been doing this for eight years and as long as I check with Endo all is well.
I have not had soaring blood sugars as I use an R insulin and background NPH insulin. Easy to control. Good luck with this. Karen
