I woke up with very bad pain on my left side. They did an IV, and a CT scan. I have a 3 MM kidney stone.

How can a kidney stone affect your blood sugar? Like elevate it.

Be sure to talk with your doctor about optimum diabetes management while you're dealing with the kidney stone. Feel better soon! ~Lynn @Glucerna

I know what you're going through also. I had surgery for kidney stones last year and it was the worst experience of my life. As others have mentioned, pain, stress and inflammation can effect BG.

I hope your doctors are helping you.

Stress of what your body is dealing with will often cause our levels to increase. It is our body's way to give you the additional energy you need to deal with whatever is ailing you. Unfortunately, it doesn't realize that you don't use it correctly.

Pain is a source of great stress to our bodies, so is inflammation and infection. Stress and inflammation increase the BGs.
