hi all, type1 and new.
This is the first time I’ve had an infection since being diagnosed. I have strep throat and feel horrid, but my bs hasn’t really given me any trouble as far as highs go.The problem is more hypos. Before I was sick I was on a pretty even roll, very slight highs and no lows. so what’s the deal? note: Despite the throat pain I’ve been eating and drinking normally. I’ve tried adjusting my insulin, but it hasn’t helped. I can’t find any pattern that would explain why it’s happening. it’s completely random.
Before this, I had a bad cold and dealt with more lows during that as well. I told my endo (he’s a major jerk by the way) he told me that isn’t possible, that I should be high if I “really” am sick. and if I am hypo then I must be dehydrated. I’m definitely not dehydrated now, so what’s the deal?
Has this happened to anyone else?
