I need advice. I’m sick with a fever and a respiratory thing for the first time since diagnosis. I’ve been checking my sugar more often, and according to my meter, my highest result was only 187. Just to be on the safe side, I used glucose/ketone strips. My first result was glucose 3/4% and small ketones. My last result was 2% or more glucose and moderate ketones.
I’m terribly confused because I only spill glucose when my BS is over 240, and my meter is telling me I’m not even close. Does this mean I’m insulin deficient or should trust my meter?
I need to call my doc, but to be honest, I asked him on Friday if I could try oral medications and I’m now a little embarassed. I’m not sure how to adjust the insulin, and I’m a little afraid I’ll have a low in my sleep, since the cough syrup makes me sleepy.
