Hi, I had gone through your query and understood your concerns.
the fever might be due to excess of thyroxin hormone produced due to thyroiditis
due to excess of thyroxine you are having problem of palpitations.
in my opinion
i suggest you to increase the dose of insulin and need to be made it twice daily.
kindly see your doc and discuss with him
Hope I was able to help you.
If you have any further question feel free to write me back. I will be happy to help.
Take care.
Best Regards.
