Re: [IP] High Blood sugars...Kevin

Dear Barb & Robin:
    Thanks for sharing your experiences. Fortunately, at age 16, Melissa's 
not getting colds and such as often as she did when younger, but having 
recently heard 2 stories of kids with viruses going up into the 400s and  NOT 
responding to boluses, injections, etc. I'm filing this "temporary basal when 
sick" hint for future reference. Makes sense to be providing a slow & steady 
"supplement" to offset the body's insulin-resistance effects during illness, 
as opposed to a big dose. 
   Michael: is there a "helpful hints from the BTDT-ers" (been there/done 
that) page? If so, is this one there? Thanks!
