    Hello there - I'm not T1, but could you possibly have a tummy bug or such likes? Have you been sick or had toilet issues?

    Importantly, how are your bloods looking?

    Have you checked your blood and tested for ketones? If you have high blood sugars and/or ketones that could be making you feel sick. I'd guess it's a bug though.

    Phone 111 if they feel you need to be in hospital that's where you should go people are failing to phone 999 or 111 when it's imperative that they do such as people with strokes or other conditions needing immediate medical attention and suffering because of it.
