    unfortunately -- they can linger for weeks -- are you seeing elevated Blood sugars as a result ??

    if so -- have a look at sick day rules -- link here http://www.leicestershirediabetes.org.uk/438.html

    If BG's ok -- just keep taking paracetamol , keep hydrated , and do your best to carry on as normal !!

    ( don't tell any girlfriend(s) - no sympathy there - haha )

    Hi,
    Drink lots of fluids, a pharmacist could advise on treatments that may help.
    Hope you feel better very soon
    Take care

    Hi everyone. I've had elevated levels.. but nothing that a bit more insulin hasn't solved! I've managed it well since this is my first illness since diagnosis. I'm taking paracetamol and carrying on with everything. Thanks for your ongoing help and support it means a lot!
