I am 80 and have been type 2 diabetic since my mid 50's. The past two mornings my blood sugar was over 200. I usually run between 80 and 120. In the past over 200 meant I was sick with something. I don't have any symtoms other than a headache. Could this mean I ame sick?

Customer: No nausea, and the headache is pretty steady today and seems to be on the sides of my head.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Can't think of anything else
