Glad you're doing better! emoticon

Thank you all for the advice on this. My goodness, what a difference without that old tooth! I told the dentist I would rather go through childbirth again than to deal with a toothache, lol. (that is no small joke, since all my babies were over 10 hrs in labor!) I was achy from the tooth removal and the lack of sleep over the past few days because of the pain, so I didn't even take my evening dose of Metformin. My bs this morning was 110 with only 1 dose of meds in me! It could also be that I didn't get to eat much but soft food after the surgery, but I'll take a lower dose of medication anyday I can get it! Now that the pain is mostly gone, maybe I will see a "normalization" of my numbers. I plan to be real good over the holidays, as this is my 1st one as a diabetic, so no unlimited noshing at functions!

The first step is always the hardest.
Stop thinking about it and just do it.

The others are totally right. ANY KIND OF STRESS will do it. Infection is a stressor. Pain is a stressor. A visit to the dentist (even when it'll be a relief!) is a stressor. And there go the numbers! LOL

You're dentist will take care of the tooth, and once that's done and healed, you'll see for yourself what experience has taught the rest of us...LOL

Hope it's soon--let us know how it goes!

Even the stress associated with chronic pain can screw with your numbers.

I recently had an old tattoo covered up and it healed about as expected but my numbers reflected that I did something foreign to my body.

Yes, ANY kind of infection will cause fluctuations in blood sugar. Glad you're seeing the dentist tomorrow. Good luck!!

Hi:
I am curious to know if anyone has had blood sugar fluctuations when confronted with dental problems. I have a tooth I know is infected and needs to be removed. At the same time, my blood sugars have been all over the place even though I eat mostly the same foods for controlling my bs and take my meds like prescribed. Can a toothache cause your bs to seem out of control? I am going to the dentist tomorrow to finally get the tooth taken care of, and hope that will be the end of the problem.

The first step is always the hardest.
Stop thinking about it and just do it.
