Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?
There is a nasty bug going around causing stomach upset and frequent diarrhea. It went through our hospital outpatient clinic last week.
It sounds like you got it :)
The only problem is, given your diabetes, recent high sugars and probable dehydration you need to be careful not to get your entire system out of whack.
"out of whack" is a medical term nowadays lol!
Make sure to drink a lot of fluids and I'd suggest checking your blood sugars more frequently. If you start to feel a lot worse, your sugars get out of control or you are just concerned, get into see your MD.
It's been lasting 7 to 10 days around here....
The color is from bile etc...nothing to worry aobut.
If your blood sugar was 271 you need to be worked up for diabetes.....it should not get that high in a normal person.
my pleasure. I hope you feel better soon
