Last week was Kyle's first experience with being sick since dx. He has had mild 24 hr viruses a couple of times and allergies, but last week he had strep throat, so our first illness involving any type of infection. As expected his BG started going very high, but I am surprised to see they are still climbing. We keep increasing both the lantus and novolog but it doesn't touch the high numbers, he is in the mid 200s a lot, so we will continue to increase the insulin. I'm just wondering how long you have noticed it takes for the BG to settle back down after being on antibiotics? This started last Thursday, so we are going on 6 days. And now I am wondering too if I should have the strep re-checked just to be sure its gone (even though he feels fine now and his throat looks better), or if his insulin needs are just going up right now for other reasons. Do you think this could still be from the strep throat almost a week later?
