"I'm not pumping yet (it gets delivered on FRIDAY!!) but I would just treat this as you do when you are sick. Check BS constantly and adjust insulin usage accordingly. YDMV, of course, and possibly let your MD/endo know whats going on and what…"

"Your welcome. Some people don't run high and some do. I'll try to remember to post back here after I get mine and let you know how it fares with my numbers. Just for fun!"

Martoya replied to Mayumi's discussion 'Flu shot and high blood sugar'
"IMO, that's not a big suprise. Technically you are being "infected" with three weakened or killed influenza viruses. Anytime you have an infection as a PWD, you will likely run higher on your numbers. I'm actually glad you posted…"

"The next meeting that the ADA hosts will be May 10 at Fado's in downtown Denver. There are usually 15-20 folks that show up. They call it A1C - adults with type 1 community. It's scheduled from 5:00pm - 7:00 pm. This is a Thursday - and…"

Martoya replied to Uproden's discussion 'So confused :-( Where did my diabetes go??? please help' in the group LADA Diabetics
"That makes more sense. Abx should not interfere with that test as the antibodies are in the bloodstream without regard to unrelated infections. Also be aware of what different medications can do to BG. As Shawnmarie said above, some will lower it…"

Martoya replied to Uproden's discussion 'So confused :-( Where did my diabetes go??? please help' in the group LADA Diabetics
"What infection did the GP say you have? As a general rule, they never give abx for the flu because its a virus and abx do not kill viruses. I question whether you possibly had an infection in the pancreas and the bactrim took care of it. That's…"
