So I’m still honeymooning, though not strongly. My I:C i 1:12, and if I don’t carefully bolus, my BG can spike very easily. I also do notice a waking-up phenomenon sometimes (no dawn phenomenon though). Also, a while ago, I was at the mall, and suddenly noticed that my phone was missing, which scared and stressed me a lot, and this I did notice easily in my BG curves (the BG shot up from ~85 to ~170 in no time). Given these facts, I’d expect to see some BG increase during an illness, like the one I have now (I have a cold). And yet, I see zero effect on the BG…?
Does anybody else here experience this? As said, I very much doubt the honeymoon phase is strong enough to completely handle any illness induced BG increase on its own, since from what I’ve read, the BG can skyrocket due to the stress hormones that are released during illness. So can it happen that some people just don’t experience high BGs during illness?
