Re: [IP] help!!!!

This could be very serious with a foot infection.  Depending on the organisms
involved, your insulin needs could increase dramatically!!!You need to be sure
the extra bolusing does not cause a crash later, that is why you need to test
every two hours until it starts going in the right direction.  I DID NOT say
you would need to bolus every two hours, but if you raise that basal rate for
a few hours temporarily, it could buy you some time to get control.  Are you
nauseated?  If so, go to ER or call MD.  Talk to MD, anyway.  Please take care
of it.
