Hello! It’s been awhile since I’ve had a true stomach bug and I guess I was due.
Last night I woke up and started puking my guts out. Followed by sharp pain in my lower right side. I called a nurse care line, did the right thing and went to the ER to get tested for appendicitis.
Good news is I don’t have it. Bad news is the only thing I know for sure is I have a little stomach bug.
I don’t really have an appetite but seem to be keeping stuff down. When I left the ER this morning, my blood sugar was 181. Not horrible considering I’m under the weather. I just checked again and now I’m at 264. My endo is advising caution with my insulin so that I don’t go too low and then I’m not able to treat it. My concern would really be that if I don’t treat it, I feel like DKA could happen somewhat easily. I’m doing my best to drink a bunch of water, but haven’t really ate.
I did move my pump to see if my spot was just bad and did a small correction of 2 units instead of 6. Anyone have any advice on how to adequately control blood sugar while being cautious about not being able to keep things down?
They did test for DKA at the ER and gave me fluids just as a good protocol but I still just hung around the 180s.
