Okay, so earlier I posted that Sarah seemed sick then got over it quickly. Well, I spoke too soon! This is her first illness since she was diagnosed about 3.5 months ago. Reading through the literature I have on sick days, everything seems to suggest that her bg will go way up, and she may start spilling ketones. Does anyone have an experience they could share with me? Sarah is 10, has had a fever for about 12 hours (about 100-101). She's eating and drinking normally but feels achy, has a headache and generally feels "miserable". Her bg has been pretty darn good all day. She started out at 137, had a low of 73 in the mid afternoon, and ended up at 127 before bed - so I'm thinking the illness isn't really affecting her - at least not yet.
Do some illnesses cause problems while others don't?
