Re: What can you eat with an upset stomach?
For just one or two days, it won't hurt you all that much to eat whatever it is that can calm your tummy. Obviously you don't want to be eating those foods frequently, but if that's all you can keep down, then just consider it a temporary problem, and get back on track as soon as your stomach settles.
For those of us on insulin, we actually end up having to eat sugary things (such as regular jello, regular soda) in those circumstances just to keep our blood sugars up. Or, sometimes, our blood sugars go up due to the stress of the illness, and then we have to take even more insulin to keep them down.
Somedays you just can't win! But, with diabetes, it's all about winning the war...if you lose a skirmish occasionally, that's okay.
