I have been having a quandary of sorts over the past day or so and I figured I would bring my concerns to all of you. I have been sick with a nasty cold over the past two days (I am feeling a lot better now though), and whenever I get sick I have the same dilemma, what medicine should I take? My doctors always tell me that diabetic cough syrup and sugar free cough drops are the way to go, but to be honest, I never have any luck with the diabetic cough syrup being effective. To be perfectly frank, NyQuil really is the one that does the trick for me. However, I know that there is added sugar and with already elevated bs from being sick, I am confused as to what I should do?
What has been your experience with being sick? What do you usually do or take or maybe not take?
P.S. I guess Mary Poppins never nannied diabetic children or the song might have been "just a basil of humalog helps the medicine go down"
