Hi carpenter,
Is it possible that you could attend diabetes classes at a local hospital or medical center? It is important to learn to manage sick days when you have diabetes. Usually on sick days the rules are:
1. Always take your diabetes medications, even if you can't eat as when you are sick your sugars often go up. If your medication says to take with food, or you have questions about medications, contact your medical provider for advice.
2. Test your blood sugar frequently (every 2-4 hours). If your sugar is over 240 mg/dl for more than 24 hours call your doctor. If it is ever over 400 mg/dl call immediately.
3. Drink as much fluid as you can. At lease 8 ox (250 ml) per hour. No caffeine. Every third hour sip 8 oz of beef or chicken broth. If you cant eat but can tolerate soup that is fine too.

I hope you are feeling better now! If not call your doctor soon!
