Keep yourself hydrated, and do not let your body start producing ketones. To do this you have to keep doing insulin and eating food. Are you on a pump?
I have been in the hospital 2 times in the past 6 months with stomach flu, and it was horrible. Dont get dehydrated, and keep your potassium and electrolite (sp?) levels up. Gatorade is great because it keeps your body burning glucose and not fat, which produces ketones and happens VERY easily when you are sick. Check your bloodsugar every half hour.
