This is Dr. David

a blood sugar of 812 is super super high and would cause someone to be in a coma.

levels above 600 will cause diabetic hyperosmolar syndrome

this can cause life-threatening dehydration and a diabetic coma

when did you get this blood level?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
It started a few days ago. It is usually under control but these past four-five days it has just been rising.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.

if your blood sugar is 812, you have to go to the ER right away for treatment and IV insulin therapy to bring down your levels.
