Got my first cold since being DX’d, and its a beauty. I get one a year, right about now and they never slowed me down. This one looks like its gonna wait around to see what I get for Christmas
I am a T2, my numbers are pretty good, and until this, I had very good control. I know I will get it back afterwards, but meanwhile, its interesting to see those numbers on the meter.
I need to find a decongestant OTC and am interested to know what folks use, have been recommended, or know to be really bad for the BG numbers. I realize I could go ask the pharmacist, but somehow, I prefer the experience and advice of those who have been there, and done that, over a textbook kind of person.
I used to get by with Mucinex D and as I mentioned in another thread, I read the box and it specifically says “not with diabetes” I never saw that word there in all these years. Funny how it keeps popping up now that I have it
Anyway, I would think it not a really bad thing to take it since my numbers are in control, and probably made worse by lack of good sleep, but want to solicit input from anyone willing to share experiences.
Besides raising the blood sugar, what else could something like Mucinex do to a diabetic like myself? Don’t like going to bed, not knowing if I will wake up
I appreciate any feedback or ideas.
