Customer Question

Hello my dad sugar was 530 so I gave him 20 units of humalog. Plus he took his other two diabete pills. I waited 30 minute then it drop to 500. Then I checked it again 30 minute later and it jumped back to 550
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?
Customer: So he told me to give him another shot plus his pills. So I did

Can you please mention what time zone you are in and at what time you checked these sugars?

Does he have any other symptoms like abdominal pain, shortness of breath, fever, increased frequency and amount of urination?

What was his last HbA1c?

Please let me know.
