Customer Question

My mothers blood suger is 321 this morning. 245 on the 27th. She takes insulin but I can't get a straight answer for when she last took any. I think she took it this morning since she wrote the numbers down. Should I take her to hospital?

Hi there

This is Dr. Diego, experienced in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary and Critical Care.

I understand your concerns. I need a bit more of information. How often does she take insulin? What kind of insulin?

Is she confused? Does she have any other medical conditions?
