I got bitten (several times) by a spider (I think) earlier in the week. Wow! That's not so fun! Beyond the itching and aching, my blood sugars have been kind of wonky since and I don't know if it's because of the bites or something else. The lack of definitive answers is one of the things that drives me the most crazy about having diabetes. I know that the bite has affected me and the doctor thinks I'm probably having a minor allergic reaction. Which means my immune system is at work, which means a "change", which means blood sugars can be affected. And my blood sugars have been higher so I guess it could be the bite... or else the chinese food I had for lunch one day or a combination of the two. Who knows? Who ever knows. But that doesn't stop my mind from asking the question a bunch of times throughout the day. "I wonder if my blood sugar is high because of the spider bites? Or maybe it's the chinese food. Or maybe its...." You know the drill. Nothing is just what it is with diabetes. It's never just a simple spider bite.
