Hello. : Hello. Don't know if your husband's diabetes is normally controlled and if there is an underlying problem (i.e., like a virus) that is causing it to be uncontrolled. Balancing blood sugar levels can be a fairly sophisticated process. I take it, that he is not on a sliding scale of insulin. At this point, i recommend that you call the emergency room since it is a sunday. His blood sugar is even higher now that it was whe he was seen at the er. It is likely that he will need to be seen back because his blood sugars are not under adequate control. It is will be imperative that his own physician be made aware of this; as he or she will be tracking him closely. Take care. I hope that this situation improves soon. ...Read more
