Fever, chill, vomiting, diabetic. Was it food poisoning?
We were out for a couple of beers this afternoon and Ken started to get the chills....shaking and a fever. We came home and he was so cold with the shaking and he started vomiting several times. It came on so suddenly. I was wondering if this could be a form of food poisoning as he was out this morning and went out for breakfast. he is 67 years old and is a diabetic. Right now hes sleeping. Thank you..........................Barbara
What is his blood sugar levels ? You also need to check for blood or urine ketones if you have a point of care device available. It could be food poisoning but also could be countless other things. Once he gets up you can take him to a doctor if he continues to vomit.
Hope this was helpful.
