My readings are higher if I have a fever.

Depends a bit on what is meant by "don't feel well" but yes. The Diabetes Self Management magazine frequently talks about the problems of maintaining normal blood sugar levels when one is sick.

I find my own levels also rise when I am stressed or depressed. Actually, it would be accurate to say that my levels swing more widely both high and low under these conditions.

I believe my body is fighting something off because I donot feel too great and I am sleeping alot. I felt really horrible the other night and my 2 hour reading was 124 (GD I believe has different values than I and II so it was high).
