It's true that illness can really throw a monkey wrench into your diabetic care plan... ANY KIND of stress, such as a fight with your BFF, a wedding, or a systemic bacterial or viral infection, will invariably make your blood sugar rise and it's very important to have a plan in place to deal with such matters.
If I were you, I'd definitely talk to my doctor.
Meanwhile, test test test. And do everything you can to stay hydrated. Water is very important--it can actually help your system flush out excess sugar as well as any toxins. If you are vomiting, and/or have diarrhea, use the BRAT diet (Bananas, Rice, Apple sauce and Toast) until things settle down. Even if you eat lightly, it's not the greatest diet for diabetics, but it works to slow down or stop the fluid losses-- so you should keep really close track of your blood sugar. You'll need to TRACK EVERYTHING you eat or drink, and to test more often, to make sure the numbers don't go too high...
And if your blood sugar gets up to 300, go to an urgent care facility or the emergency room. Yes, it's that serious.
Once it gets that high, It's harder to bring it down without help--it can climb up and up, and even cause a diabetic coma. Not a good thing...
Once you have a "sick day" plan in place, you can follow your doctor's recommendations and you will have the security of knowing what to do and when, and of knowing that your medical team is on board.
Hope you feel better soon! Kathy

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL
Life comes in specific increments, which we receive as a gift of one moment at a time. That's why it's called

Your local health department should be able to walk you through whether your stomach virus was indeed a food born illness. If both you and your husband have the common symptoms, then it has a higher likelihood of being something you both ate. Could be a lot of things. Regarding the Diabetes info, it can be overwhelming. But you need to make steps forward to help manage it before it progresses beyond your current stage. Positive steps take constant effort. Proper nutrition, exercise, losing weight if applicable, drinking plenty of fluids, and sleeping adequately help me immensely. Good luck!
Wouldn't attempt to offer diagnosis, or treatment of your stomach issues, but my Blood Sugar always raises up when I am sick. So if it seems like something you ate didn't agree with you, that may account for the slight raise in BS. Conversley if the distress was from a stomach flu, that will make BS rise.
But if it's 200 because you had Pizza ..then the carbs raised it...combined with the fat will have it staying up! Check with your Endocronologist or Dr. for a sick day plan, how to handle meds, and what you should eat.. Hope you feel better!

I'm so sorry. I have borderline diabetes and my husband is diabetic, but I still don't know much about how to control blood sugars (even with a diabetes class at the local hospital!). I hope some of the other members comment on your post soon.
My husband and I both had a horrible stomach virus (may have even been the Norovirus) a couple of weeks ago. It was brutal and unrelenting. I hope your stomach distress was temporary and that you don't have a virus or anything.
I hope you feel better real soon. Take care.
