Type 1 Diabetes: particularly clomid and how this has affected people's blood sugars?!

I'm not exactly new here as I posted a year ago when we first got our test results however...I've just started on clomid and I have type 1 diabetes for which I use an insulin pump. I'm feeling pretty rank but manageable but my blood sugars have gone up. Today was my last tablet, I'm day 6. I was just wondering if anyone had more info on this or personal experience? Not sure if I should expect dodgy sugars the whole time or just the days I take the tablets?
By the way I asked my dr but she didn't know!
Any advice would be appreciated!

Hi, Ginn
I must be honest that I do not know the answer to your question. I am a type 2 diabetic and neither Clomid nor injectable stimulation affected my blood sugar level. I don't know whether this is different for type 1 and type 2...
