After a major motor vehicle crash my blood glucose level was elevated, why?

Adrenaline mobilizes sugar into the bloodstream so that our muscles can use it if we are in a situation where we need to escape danger. Blood sugars are always high after an accident so don't worry but get your sugar checked by your doctor to make sure you do not have early diabetes. ...Read more

My father's age is 73. Suffering from diabetes 20 years. His blood glucose level fluctuating from low to high in a single day. What is the remedy?

No cure: It is Dad's responsibility to manage his diabetes as long as he is in charge of his health. The only thing you can really do in this situation is to offer to exercise as a family. Inform yourself about his diabetes and what he should be doing, and perhaps get guidance from his physician, but ultimately compliance and good control rests with Dad.
