I have been sick so I took some Advil cold & sinus . I took them at 4 PM and I just checked my BS and I am 367 .
Has anyone had this problem with Advil cold & sinus? It is really to late for me to take a correction I might go low while I am asleep . How long will it keep my sugar up ?

I'd go w/ the doc and sickness over sudafed. I take that all the time and it cranks me up a little bit but not that much. Sickness seems more likely in my experience. I don't bother asking my doctor about it, just watch it and sort of anticipate some highs.

Ok I did not take a correction factor before bed good thing because I was 136 when I got up this morning . Thanks for all of yall's help. I guess sometimes there is no reason other then just being sick . I feel better today !!!!

I was 250 again after lunch today. I don't usually run high like this often but even having a little bug (which I may have) in your system throws everything haywire. I've used sudafed before and never noticed anything but who knows. Sad thing is everything and anything can raise your sugar but the only thing that can lower it is insulin and sometimes exercise if you still have some insulin on board and are under 250. I know highs are horrible for us but the only reason I get freaked out over them is cause I feel like walking death. If I felt fine I'd just make the correction calmly and move on. Take into account I am not a very good patient. I don't test near as much as I should and still try to eat most of the things I enjoy rather then whats best for me.

It's the illness. Every time I get the least bit sick my BS sky rocket and I haven't taken any meds. Plus it takes twice as much to get it down. I've been feeling like I might be coming down with something for a couple weeks, not actually sick yet, and for the past couple weeks I've been fighting like heck to get and maintain a good blood sugar. (It knows before I do that I'm sick)I usually try and do a temporary basal for a few hours at a time, watch it closely and that seems to keep it under control

I took the advil all day yesterday and my sugar was not high and I feel much better this morning !!! So I guess it was the sickness or my lunch that was both high carb & high fat !! (I know I am a bad boy LOL). Because my BS was not high at supper time I did not think it was my lunch . I ate lunch at 11 AM and my BS did not go high until 7-8 PM.
I guess the fat slowed down the BS rise . Guess I will not be eating that very enjoyable meal again from what my mom says LOL man I am still hearing about it .
Thanks guys got to go to work !!! Glad advil cold doesnt make my sugar go up because they sure made me feel better
