Hi Everyone,

I need some advice. I have had a stoamch virus for the past couple of days and notice that my BG is higher than usual. Is this related to the stomach virus? If so is there anything I can do to bring my numbers down, or do I just have to wait it out?

Thanks for any advice

Hi Jo,
Sorry I did not see this sooner, but with everyone else on here wishing you well, you did not need mine anyway…LOL
I'm glad you are feeling better, and yes illness, and any stressful situations will affect your BG levles, so do not get alarmed about them.

Hi JoJo,
I would just wait it out, they will come down. Mine will go up when I am sick. Hope you are feeling better. Lanore
