So,this is the first time I have been poorly since dx. I have other health problems, but this is my first virus. I am sitting here with a runny nose, headache etc and am not happy!! My bgl has been higher for the last couple of days and now its 9.3. Hasn't been that high (except when I have eaten way too many carbs) since I started testing. I understand that it will get higher, but I'm wondering if non d's experience this as well? And are there any hints, tips etc or do we just sit it out? Im not on insulin etc, just metformin. Any advice gratefully received. I have read the sick day rules. Thanks all.
