I woke up this morning running a 100.2 fever, dizzy, and have a nasty sore throat. I’ve been trying to do just liquids, chicken broth, etc., but have been on a yo-yo of highs and lows. I know you’re supposed to take insulin, but I tried to cover my broth with just one unit and ended up in the 50’s. I’ve taken my Lantus and was maintaining fairly well until I tried to eat. My mother, she’s an RN, is concerned because of the swine flu, but I think I’m just sick with the regular flu.
Should I try to cover my little bit of carbs that I’m consuming or just say to hell with it and just take my Lantus? I’ve been testing a little more and since I’ve corrected my last low I’ve been pretty much right below 200. Anything over 250, I’m supposed to call in, but when do you just throw the towel in and say it’s time to call or go in?
