[IP] Re: Poor Erica



My son, Paul, reacts to virus, stomach flu exactly as you describe. Colds 
either send him high or have little affect. Viruses make him go low, low, low.

Fortunately, like Erica, he has only had a few viruses in the five years 
we've been dealing with diabetes. He has not had once since going on the pump 
in July so it'll be interesting to see how we handle it when it happens. When 
he was on MDI, we reduced his insulin to practically nothing until the bug 
passed.

Good luck. Let us know how Erica -- and you -- do!

Janice, proud mom of Paul, DX 20 months, now 7 and pumping since July 12
