Back to Ask the Diabetes Team Sick Days

Sick Days from 2006

  1. When ill, my son-in-law, who has type 1, is angry and moody. He refuses to seek medical help. Are his mood swings caused by fluctuating blood sugars? (23 Dec 2006)
  2. My daughter has been vomiting today. We are worried about lows and ketones. Our doctor has us giving small doses of glucagon and insulin. What is your approach? (21 Dec 2006)
  3. Since his diagnosis a week ago, my son has been ill and having low blood sugars. Is he entering the "honeymoon" phase? Do we need to adjust his insulin? (14 Dec 2006)
  4. My daughter went to the ER with flu-like symptoms and ketones. Now home, she has moderate ketones. How do I get rid of them without another ER visit? (4 Apr 2006)
  5. During her recent illness, I gave my daughter glucagon twice to bring up her blood sugars. She is still running low. What could be going on? (24 Mar 2006)
  6. My toddler has rotavirus. I'm concerned about my son, who has had type 1 for about a year. What do I do if he shows signs of the illness? (21 Mar 2006)
