Customer Question
My blood sugar this...

My blood sugar this a.m. was 197 after fasting. It's never been this high before. Lost a night's sleep last night because of what I thought was a gerd attack which I have had before but not more that 2 hour duration. Is it gerd or maybe related to the high blood sugar reading, e.g. pancreatitus?

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

Good, some blood sugar readings in the 140's and 150.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Gerd.
