Can tetanus toxoid increase blood sugar levels?

I am 62 years old male under no regular medication. My HbAIC was about 6 last few years. I took a tetanus toxoid injection on April 25th. Since then I noticed my blood sugar was about 25% higher. My HbAiC was 7.8 on June 112th. Can tetanus toxoid increase fasting blood sugar levels?

Dear Friend,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum & Thanks for the query.

I do not think Tetanus Toxoid can increase the blood sugar.

It could be due to some other reason.

Anu infection can increase the blood sugar temporarily.

Hence wound infection for which you might have taken Inj TT may be the cause for rise in blood sugar

Contact me for more information or guidance
