Re: [IP] Blood Sugars When You're Sick.



Christina,

My view is to do the best you can at your blood sugars but to not beat
yourself up if you start having problems.  Attack the problems and not
yourself.

Of course as we all say around here YMMV.  But it is not impossible that
your insulin needs would jump up like you are reporting when you are ill.

I hope you feel better soon!

Chris

Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in
finishing an activity but in doing it.
