To protect the corona, all people are advised to get the vaccine as soon as possible. Some side effects are common after receiving the vaccine, but there are some such conditions that concern doctors. Some patients with the Covid-19 vaccine have been observed a sudden increase in blood sugar, especially in patients with diabetes.
The Fortis C-Doc Center of Excellence for Diabetes Hospital told The Times of India that seven to eight cases of high blood sugar from the vaccine had recently been reported. There is also a 58-year-old woman with type 2 diabetes over the past 20 years.
According to a report published in the medical journal Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome, the woman took the first Cveshield doll on March 4. Dr Anoop Mishra, President, Fortis C-Doc said, “Before the vaccine, the woman’s blood sugar level was completely controlled with medication and diet, but it was found to increase for a month after the injection.
One 64-year-old man took the first dose of CoveShield on January 18. Her blood pressure rose from 130/80 mm Hg to 160/90 mm Hg, according to a medical journal report. In addition, she was found crying with tachycardia, profuse sweating and irregular heartbeat for several hours.
After the vaccine, the person’s blood sugar continued to rise for three days, which gradually became normal on its own. A similar case came to the notice of a 65-year-old man, whose blood sugar levels rose after receiving a vaccine, which became standard on his own without effort for 15 days.
Common side effects of Covishield include fatigue, chills, headaches, fever and flu-like symptoms. Symptoms such as abdominal pain, enlarged lymph nodes, itching or rash are also seen in some people. However, doctors at the hospital said that an increase in high blood pressure or a change in blood glucose was not reported in vaccine trial data.
According to a magazine report, ‘In all three cases, proper nutrition and exercise helped control the glycemic for a long time. In these cases, all the causes of high blood glucose were excluded. It is possible that as a result of the vaccine, their blood glucose level suddenly increased.
Dr Mishra said, ‘The good thing is that in all of these cases, the blood sugar level has returned to normal and there has been no need to make drastic changes in treatment. However, patients with diabetes should be aware of a sudden increase in blood sugar or blood pressure. Any major problem can be prevented with caution.
The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) also released the COVID guideline for people with diabetes and high blood pressure in March this year. It is said in the guideline that in corona, diabetes, BP, heart patients should continue with all the usual medications. Do not stop taking medication without first consulting a doctor.
The ICMR said no evidence was found that antiretroviral drugs increase coronary sensitivity. Blood pressure medications work on the heart. These drugs are very effective in controlling high blood pressure and preventing heart failure. Leaving these drugs alone can be dangerous.
