No past quite like this present!My blood used to be perpetually low, but know it is perpetually normal.Blood tests started after I got home from my birthday meal and a movie! 374. Bolus Wizard to the rescue. Few hours later: 364. Again: Bolus Wizard. Few hours later: 436. I am quite suspicious, but Bolus Wizard. Few hours later, the test reached new heights: 506! I started gagging. One hour later, 536. I new what was gonna happen, so prepared a bag in a bag for my coming hurl. Did not take long. Started gagging while finding the bags, and while quickly assembling it. Then I actually heaved. Just once. Had not eaten all day! Ketoacidosis is checking in.

Thank you very much for all the information provided.

Yes , these sugar levels are soaring !

You need ER care without further delay.This is not related to MS

This can happen due dysfunction of the pancreas , stress induced adrenal problems

You would need to get some investigations done.

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
