[IP] illness and high blood sugars

You may want to try and make his basal rate higher for a few hours.  I have 
found this to work quite well when I am sick.  I do a temporary basal rate 
for 3 or 4 hours and check every 2-3 hours to see how my sugars are running.  
You actually need MORE insulin when you are sick even if you are not eating.  
Good luck,
