My daughter had a fever for a few days the beginning of last week. The days leading up to that she was having higher than normal BGs which I know is normal the few days leading up to the sickness. So, I thought she needed increased basal just because she hasn't had a change in lantus in a longgg time. We started seeing an increase in BGs between breakfast and lunch.
The fever started Monday, that's when I picked her up from school. She went back Friday. I'm still seeing an increased need for insulin though. She doesn't get sick a lot so it's truly hard to remember how it would've been last time she was sick. So, we doubled her basal and bolus for most of the time she had the fever and that seemed to work pretty well. Best "sick days" we've had.
Since I'm still seeing a need for the increase (although not as much of an increase now since she's had a couple lows) It would seem very odd if this coincided with an actual normal need for an increase in both insulins
