    Hi, haven’t long had diabetes, have had a slight upset tummy, so haven’t eaten anything so no insulin, blood levels ok! Is this normal?

    Hello and welcome to the forum. I hope you feel better soon and it’s just a temporary upset stomach. Having type 1 doesn’t have to be feeling unwell all the time at all. :)

    You should at the very least keep taking your long acting basel insulin.

    Hello Jane - I'm sorry you're having tummy troubles.

    Please do test very frequently, just to ensure things are staying on track. Better safe than sorry.
