Woke up with sore throat, ears, sinuses. I've had my flu shot so I'm going with cold or allergies. No fever.
In the past I would have curled upwith a pot of tea and some comfort food. Carbs shouldn't count when you feel yucky.
Oh well they do now, I'll stick to the tea.
I've heard that beeing ill can mess with your #'s. How so and why?
On the up side my husband is on a new med combo and his fasting #'s have gone from over 200 to 120! Yes yes yes!

My understanding is that illness stresses your body. That translates into higher glucose levels the same way an emotional stress does. Kudo's to your husband for getting his numbers down! Maybe you can find a low or no carb version of your favorite comfort food. Don't forget to laugh. It will help you to relieve some of your stress. I hope you feel better soon.
