Exubera and High Blood Sugar

Even in people with well-controlled diabetes, high blood sugar levels are possible. For example, fever, infections, injury, or surgery can temporarily increase blood sugar levels, regardless of the diabetes medicine a person is taking. Contact your healthcare provider if you have a fever, infection, injury, or will be having surgery. Also, you should contact your healthcare provider immediately if you notice any possible symptoms of high blood sugar. These symptoms include, but are not limited to:
 
  • Increased hunger
  • Increased thirst
  • Increased urination
  • Blurred vision
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea or vomiting.
