    What do you do for a cold or flu ?

    I think I'm coming down with the flu. Feel very crummy. Really don't want to eat (lost my appetite). Seems I'm drinking more fluids. Right now BS are stable.
    I know when this hits full force they will be all over the place. Do you have any suggestions, that would maybe lessen the severeaty of this?

    I'd stick away from Emergen-C and I KNOW Airborne and Zicam are 1000% scams. My brother did ads for them and they even admitted it outright lol.
    My best flu/cold remedy:
    -Mucinex (my endo said even Mucinex DM won't raise blood sugars much and was alright)
    -Lots of clear fluids, water, tea, soda, diet cranberry juice etc
    -Fruit
    -Popping a Vitamin C AFTER the fact doesn't do too much, but still I'd keep on with your daily multivitamin
    -Get plenty of sleep. If you're not eating, showering, bathrooming etc you should try to sleep as much as possible. You can really sleep off a cold/flu.
    -Stay warm even if you're sweating. You sweat and get a fever because your body fights off infection easier at the higher temperature.
    -To break a fever take a cool shower, aspirin, or towel down yourself with cool water and shiver it out a little bit. Tylenol is still your friend after all these years. Stay away from Advil, Alleve, etc which can raise your blood pressure which we all know most diabetics are already prone to.
    I'm sure someone else will say it but TEST often. Antibiotics and sickness in general can cause havoc with your numbers so it's best to keep a close eye and not get too worried if your sugars jump a BIT..that's normal.
