Brief Answer: Insulin Detailed Answer: Hi, I wish to know whether you are taking insulin for diabetes. Your blood sugar needs to be controlled before you undergo colonoscopy. Fasting sugar 300 is High and colonoscopy not recommended unless you get sugar controlled with adjusting insulin dosage. Let me know if you have any more questions. Regards Dr. Mahesh Koregol
