just getting over the flu. OMG. my BS were so high and i became very insulin resistant. i had to recalabrate the patterns on my pump.i was lucky that i was able to have gotten a flu shot and took Tamaflu immediately. my husband gave it to me. i knew i should have slept in the livingroom!!!!
anyone out there who has been through this experience who woul like to share their winter hardships?
it depends on your meter, but most max out at 400 or 500. If you don't have the meter manual, you might be able to find it online.
What meter do you have ?
i have the one touch ultra (which i love and have used for the past 15 yrs or so) and it does go up to and over 500.
On the OneTouch meters HI is 600 and above. Most other meters go to 500 (I don't know any that max out at 400).
I would definitely check for ketones and stay safe!
I've had a few HIs in my life but usually due to pump problems rather than being sick. I didn't get a flu shot this year and so far only had one cold.
Wow, it's been a while since I had checked for the max. This link says HIGH means over 600 ! Were you checking for ketones ?
Hope you are over the flu now, and out of those high BGs!
