I m a recently diagnosed Lada diabetic, I have been honeymooning for the last 6-8 weeks, meaning my insulin requirements were very small and I was able to control my BG numbers very well, (fasting 80-100), post-prandial on low carb mostly under 130 mg/dl.
Yesterday I started to develop a light cold (no fever), and suddenly my numbers look very different. After eating a small breakfast which included around 1.5 KE), which I bolused for (1 unit Novorapid) my BG has rised after 2 h to 220! (I never have these numbers)
I m very scared because I m new to all this and since I dont use basal insuline yet I am worried that the BG will rise and rise until it gets dangerous! But I am not very form on correction insulin yet--
Can anybody give me some advice on what to do and how likely I will get into dangerous territory? Should I contact my doctor?
