@A DiabetesTeam Member - some good advice here regarding lots of fluids. Also remember to take your blood sugar readings more often when you're sick so they don't go dangerously high.

Drink plenty of water so you keep well hydrated. Rest well. Take paracetamol for a temperature.

Yes drink plenty of water. I hardly get sick, knock on wood. I get the flu shot and also the pneumonia shot. Get plenty of rest also.
