Last night I awakened suddenly in the middle of the night with the thought of Andrew's recent vaccinations. If you've been following my blog, you know that Andrew had a wonderful 2-1/2 year honeymoon. He was on extremely little amounts of insulin and NO long acting insulin. The doctors kept saying that he was definitely an unusual case.
That was until....a couple of days following his meningitis and TDaP vaccinations.
After those vaccinations, his blood glucose numbers went crazy! We could not get him under 200 in the mornings. Remember, this was after 2-1/2 years of being under 120 upon awakening and having NO long acting insulin.
Needless to say, we are STILL struggling to get his blood glucose ratios figured out. People might say it was a coincidence, but I don't believe in coincidences. It is so puzzling that he would go from such a mild case of diabetes to full blown diabetes over night.
Did those vaccinations kill off the rest of his pancreas? I can't prove it, but the numbers don't lie.
