Is it safe for diabetic patients with high blood sugar to inject the Covid-19 vaccine?

Suara.com – Diabetic patients are one of the groups at high risk of being infected with the Covid-19 corona virus, especially when spikes in blood sugar levels are high and uncontrolled.

Infection with the Covid-19 corona virus is not only a big risk of affecting the lives of diabetic patients, but can also increase the likelihood of black fungus infection or mucormycosis.

Therefore, diabetics need to receive the Covid-19 vaccine injection. The Covid-19 vaccine is a clone of the corona virus infection that also activates the immune response in the body.

So most people will experience some side effects after injecting the Covid-19 vaccine. However, this Covid-19 vaccine injection is not at all associated with a spike in a person’s blood sugar levels.

Even so, many people with diabetes may hesitate or fear injecting the Covid-19 vaccine when blood sugar levels are high. Director of AIIMS Bhopal, Dr. Sarman Singh said that people with high blood sugar can inject the Covid-19 vaccine, because there is no relationship between the vaccine and blood sugar levels.

Meanwhile, according to Times of India, maintaining blood sugar levels are recommended to maintain the overall health of diabetic patients. Dr. Singh clarified that the Covid-19 vaccine would not interfere with a person’s blood sugar levels.

Given that the COVID-19 vaccine has no relationship with blood sugar levels in the body, experts recommend diabetic patients to inject the Covid-19 vaccine as soon as possible.

Moreover, there are now many variants of the corona virus which are feared to be more contagious and dangerous. So everyone is advised to take stricter precautions and inject the Covid-19 vaccine, especially those at risk.

If you are diabetic and experience sudden spikes in your blood sugar levels, there are a few things to keep in mind. According to Dr Singh, the Covid-19 vaccine has nothing to do with blood sugar levels.

If the sugar level can be controlled, it is better to take such measures. If your blood sugar level is very high, you may feel more pain at the injection site. In addition, people with high blood sugar levels may also be susceptible to infection from the vaccination site.
