Diabetes VERY HIGH, 585. Need advice?
My mother is 75. She was never a diabetic. Last week she was detected 585 sugar. We rushed to hospital and with insulin it came down to 200. Next day it went to same level. She is on medication by doctor with strict diet. It is now 4 days and still the blood sugar level is fluctuating between 400 to 500. She is at home with no physical symptoms. Should she be hospitalized? Is medication enough to bring the sugar level down and how many days will this take? Need advice? Doctors saying No need to hospitalized or insulin. Please advice?
