    Hello, I've got type 1 diabetes and I've been sick.
    The insulin I've taken for dinner has now made me blood sugars drop. Every time I try to bump them up, I'm sick on the drink I have.
    My bloods been going up and down from 3.3 to 4.7. But every time it rises I'm sick.
    Help! Any suggestions? I'm feeling pretty tired and ill

    Can you suck glocotabs or similar without vomiting? Otherwise seek medical help.

    Hey if you have ketones and Cant keep anything down I’d go to a&e. Better to be safe - and I was told this by my dsn so don’t worry about feeling like you shouldn’t! Hope you feel better soon

    You need to contact your medical practice and seek help.Its very important not to get dehydrated so keep sipping water.But the important thing is to get the advice of a doctor.A and E if you don't get through to your doctor.You could also look at sick day rules for type 1s on this website there's a clear chart for type 1s.......but you need to contact a doctor.

    If you can't keep water down suck ice cubes. I'd also get to hospital - last time my ketones were that level I had to go in. Not for long though, just for rehydration purposes. All the best x
