    I have recently have been rather ill with common colds and other germy things.
    It has been a constant battle trying to keep my bloods under the mid 20's and I feel just constantly drained from it.
    I want to know if anyone has any tips what helps them keep their bloods normal when being ill.

    Any help will be much appreciated

    I did all that as I have just finished the PASTIE course which is the DAFNE course
    But even that wasn't helping much. I just kept getting one bug after another, was pretty ill for around a month and a half.
    Was just wondering if anyone might of had any other techniques which might of helped them

    i adjust my basal dose a little when feeling ill with very high BGs, a increase of 10 - 15% works ok for me. and lots of testing.
