I went out tov eat for my nieces graduation this Friday and I got food posioning! She lives one hour away from me. Buy the time I was driven home I threw up all the way home. My husband made me check my sugar when we got home and to top everything else off I went low! It just goes to show you no matter what else is going on you have to always remember your diabetes too! I don't really understand what caused the low? Maybe it was because I vomited all the way home??? Any ideas??? I'm better now I got it all out of my system. But I was wondering if vomiting causes lows?? Does any one know???

Remember, food poisoning is an assault on your body just like any other infection. It elevates your body temp which ramps up your metabolism. This in turn burns calories which can lower your BG.
