    You should contact your DSN (diabetes specialist nurse) tomorrow and mention the nausea to them, they'll let you know what to do. It might be any one of a number of things. Have you been keeping blood sugar readings? Also make a note of the times you feel sick, so the nurse can see if it's related to blood sugar levels.
