where people touched by diabetes help each other.

How are your levels when you have a cold? My son's levels are pretty high. He's 400 and I'm watching very carefully his food

My son is very high with colds too. He had a cold this week and we just gave extra insulin according to his sliding scale.

Yes, colds and illness can make you run high, along with stress

Don't forget to check ketones!
