Coping while sick
No one plans to be under the weather. But there may be a day when a cold or flu virus knocks you flat. You may be feeling lousy, but you mustn’t cut back on your medication. Your blood glucose level is likely already high if you’re sick, and skipping your pills will push it even higher. Also, even if your appetite is a no-show, you should still try to swallow a few crackers or a gelatin dessert, and drink lots of water.
