I would also consult your CDE or Dr. Concerning a Sick Day plan to meet your own needs.  Nancy13

I make popsicles that have sugar free lemon lime soda and frozen fruit (all berries) in them.   Perhaps if you made a version with full-sugared soda it would help.  Just a suggestion.  Hope you feel better soon!

I would say just start   slow,   the fact your going low to the 50s is not good at all.          What oral meds are you on,  sounds like a sulfa med which  could be dangerous without foods.      I would first find out what   the med you are on does,    I would also call the doc and let them know.       I have been at this for 29 yrs    so I  am very familiar with what these  meds do for many.

I have heard that if you hadn't eaten for a week that you will not have an appetite.  Sounds like you got in that situation.  You can start light with things like jellow with fruit in it, soups, and strangely, maybe something like a little oatmeal and toast.  You might be dehydrated so it would pay to get something like sugar free Gatorade or it's equivelent in case your electrolytes are off.  Need lots of fluid for sure.  Just start simple with your eating and maybe snacking little snacks through out the day might be more tolerable than one heavy meal.  I find fruit simple to eat.  Do you?

I've had the flu for over a week (fever, cough, etc.) and am mostly over it. Glucose ran high during it. Now the thought of food nauseates me and I keep going low (50).  Where to start?
