    You haven't been given steroid tablets for your asthma/chest infection? They can really elevate the glucose levels, particularly in evening.
    I guess that you are drinking plenty and checking ketones.
    Best wishes

    Thai broth, tom yam, made up of all the things that help breathing/flu. Give it a go as it puts hot fluids in, and it makes you feel good.

    garlic, chilli, lemon grass, galangal, ginger. veg, leave out the noodles and add protein of your choice

    get well soon

    I definitely agree with Ross.Walker. I had a terrible cold and tom yum soup worked wonders!

    Most large supermarkets sell them. Sainsbury’s even do packs with all the ingredients in them.

    Thanks for the recipe, I could do with a spicy broth. I have a Thai meal kit in my freezer. I'll make some today. I've had the flu for over a week, and now I'm left with a terrible phlegmy cough and sky high BG readings. I shovelled my 90yr old neighbours drive way, on an empty stomach, Big mistake, I took a reading 6.9mmol/L. I have only had about 10grams total in carbs in the last week from my 1 hardboiled egg a day, the only thing I can choke down. I may have to ask to go on medication if My BG keeps skyrocketing from any type of exercise
