where people touched by diabetes help each other.

So last night I got sick,And I'm still feeling yucky today, My blood sugars are high. I don't want to correct because I'm afraid that when I do I'm going to puke again and my BG will plummet. Advice??

You will need to eat a balanced meal along with your insulin dosage. You can get better.

I would suggest protein and no carbs. Or...call your doctor.

Energy drinks. You still need nutrients & if your blood sugar drops at least the Gatorade or whatever your preferred brand is can help bring you back up. Keep testing too, especially while sick

Try eating soft things. Sugars always get high when you are sick. If things don't get better call your endo. They can tell you how to correct when sick.

I just slept a lot... And had a lot of fluids.

And made sure I kept my blood sugars a little higher than normal.

Maybe try correcting, but only taking half of what you would normally correct. Hope you feel better :)
