Hi. Just for your understanding when you are ill you need to have a better control over your sugar levels. You might be needing more of the antidiabetic drug to keep your levels under check and depending upon the judgement of your treating doctor you might have been put on insulin as it surely offers better and stricter control. Any state of disease or stress triggers hyperglycemia so you need to have a more strict control.
