Re: [IP]Sickness and Lows



Sherry,
I get lows with certain types of sickness-stomach
upsets with dierrea,vomiting.Even if I'm running a
fever with that.Very bad lows in fact,I have to cut my
insulin by 2\3%.If I get a cold or regular flu(with no
gastrointestinal incolvement) I run high.Everyone is
different,I guess.
