Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 months ago.

you need to eat healthier meals, less carbohydrates, more fruits and vegetables and some lean protein

and continue to take your insulin which will bring down your blood glucose levels.

it could take some time to find the right dose of insulin for you.

but your doctors will get your blood sugar back down

your surgery may have to be postponed one week or so,

until your doctors find the right dose of insulin for you

your doctors have to keep testing your sugars and increasing the dose of insulin until you glucose levels start to come down
