    Partial thyroidectomy and blood sugar

    Hi All,
    Has anyone had a partial thyroidectomy and had it affect their blood sugar levels? It's been a full day since mine, and my sugars are riding high. My usual ratio and correction doses haven't been enough to get me level... Just keep increasing the insulin dosage until it works?

So with the normal basals and temp set, I'm taking 2.40 units per hour.
