Re: [IP] HUMAN Virus attack (not computer)
I had similar symptoms when I had the flu about 10 years ago. BGs way, way
up and I was shooting up insulin like a drug addict. Nothing would bring it
down. Had a fever that came on strong, then left suddenly and would
reappear an hour later.
It took me about ten days to fully recover, and beware - - - in my case, my
bgs dropped like a rock back into somewhat normal range (200s). It took me
by surprise, and I had recently dosed for a large bg. So I had to drink
sugar water (YUK!) to get me back in the saddle again.
I am so sorry about your son's illness,
