From Bakersfield, California, USA:

I have type 2 diabetes, and I recently asked my doctor if it would be a good idea for me to try getting allergy shots instead of taking my oral medication because I feel it is not working for me very well anymore. She told me that they wouldn't be a good idea because they would cause my sugar to rise. Is this true?


don't think that allergy shots cause blood sugar difficulties.


[Editor's comment: I agree. And I don't think that allergy shots could substitute for oral hypoglycemic agents. WWQ]
