first don't panic, I know I did the first time I got ill, but I do choose to take my sugars a few extra times, being sick, not eating, and medications affect blood sugars but I found out I need to test to find out where I am.

Have some diet & non-diet soda's *=(gingerale) if you're low drink the one with real sugar but keep the diet kind on hand if you are low.

I really would test more often. Some meds will affect blood sugar but you'll only know if you test.

I hope you feel better,

go to the doctor and have it checked out. Could be nothing.
Some of the diabetes medications can cause respiratory infections
