Ryan tested positive for strep this morning. This will be the third time that he has been sick, but the first time that requires medication. The first two times he was sick his bg went low and so far that's the case yhis time but he just started the antibiotics. I'm worried that the sugars will make him go high. I know to monitor him more often, but is there anything else we should look for or make try to do?

He'll need the antibiotics for the strep. Just keep an eye on his numbers. I run higher on antibiotics and I adjust my pump settings accordingly to help keep them in check. Sick days always suck for keeping glucose levels in check… Hope he starts feeling better soon!
