A week ago I came down with a severe case of highly contagious viral gastroenteritis (primary care doctor's diagnosis). I don't care about eating and when I do eat everything comes out rather quickly. The doctor gave me little help other than eat chicken soup and drink Gatorade. My blood sugars have been dangerously low - even after eating bananas and jello and taking little insulin (normally with what I've been eating my blood sugars would be high based on insulin to carb ratio). I've had this for 9 days now and have lost 12 pounds (normally healthy; rarely sick). Any ideas on what to do to get this bug out of my gut and get on a normal routine? Thanks, Mark
