I have been fighting a bad cold for the last several days. It has gotten to the stage where I seem to just cough constantly. In order to calm it down enough to go to sleep last night I had a couple of cough drops that had honey inside. When I did my testing this morning it was higher than it usually is by about 5-8 points. From the cough drops?

Being ill can raise your bs and I think that I would switch to sugar free cough drops. I like the Ricola ones in the yellow package - of course they are sugar free. Get better soon.

thanks. I just bought some diabetic cough syrup. I didn't find any sugar free drops but will look harder next time. The cough syrup tasted like $%&@!!!! But it seems to be helping, so I guess that is the main thing.
