    Hi Sparklebright,

    In my experience. Incidences when I caught stuff with symtoms like this any time of year in the past dropped dramatically when I stopped working with either kids or in close quarters to members of the general public...
    Though oddly, I've not had sore throats since I was a kid..

    Those high numbers you're having are a bit of a concern. How long have the high BGs been present, & have you tested for ketones?
    They are worth consulting your doctor over..

    Best wishes.

    A sore throat is one thing, but pain in your ears as well suggests you may be developing a more severe infection. This could explain your raised glucose levels as well. I would suggest contacting your GP.

    I find raised blood sugars emphasise and sniffs, niggles, aches, etc.
    So, whilst I agree the high levels are very likely to do with an infection, the high level could also be making the pain worse.

    Definitely something worth getting looked at.

    If it tests too high for the meter to read you should call 111 - you may need medical attention...

    Hi if I were in your shoes with a reading as high as that which is very high I would be calling 111 for advice/help
