Hello Liliany, Thank you for the question.
Blood sugar levels are not only affected by food consumption but also fluid consumption. Someone who experiences repeated vomiting and bowel movements if it is not balanced with adequate fluid intake can experience dehydration. Dehydration can cause fluid levels in the body to decrease. Decreased body fluid levels can cause the blood to be relatively more concentrated so that when blood sugar levels are checked, blood sugar levels will increase. This condition is a normal reaction. However, if complaints of vomiting and diarrhea occur in diabetics, this should be more aware. Please advise your husband to maintain body fluid intake and monitor blood sugar levels more regularly. If your husband continues to experience this complaint and is completely unable to maintain body fluid intake, please advise your husband to seek immediate medical help because this condition can worsen his diabetes condition / cause further complications.
Hope this information helps you.
