Type 2 diabetes: How to manage blood sugar levels when you're ill

It is important to avoid sugary drinks, however, as this can have the reverse effect and raise blood sugar levels further.

According to Paul McArdle, Diabetes Specialist and Registered Dietitian: “There are plenty of sugar-free drinks using low calorie sweeteners that can help keep your fluids topped up without increasing blood glucose.”

Additionally, you should keep tabs on your blood sugar levels at least every four hours, including during the night, according to Diabetes UK.

Furthermore, you should keep eating and drinking, and, if you can’t keep food down, try snacks or drinks with carbohydrates in to give you energy, says the health body.
