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 1 year 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 1 year 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.
