Fluid and control


The main thing you can do is to stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water. Make sure you are still taking your BASAL insulin. Adjust the dose as needed but the way to stay out of DKA is to have some insulin on board and lots and lots of water.

Hydration!


Keep hydrated-clear liquids that contain both calories and electrolytes are the best. (An oral electrolyte solution like Pedialyte, esp. for severe cases or young children. Gatorade/powerade for mild. If vomiting-small sips-1 tsp every 10 minutes will be well tolerated. If diarrhea-consider imodium. Watch urine output-if it decreases, call your doctor.

Rebalance flora


if you take a bunch of probiotics, and drink more water, it might help your body re-calibrate. After stomach flu, your intestinal flora probably got out of balance.
