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?

It started a few days ago. It is usually under control but these past four-five days it has just been rising.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years 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.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
