Im really worried, he just checked his blood sugar, and it is reallly really high. Is there any quick fix, because its night and he cant go to the doctor. i gave him his medication, and he ate something. AND WHY WOULD HE WANT TO DIE? THATS STUPID, AND YOUR HEARTLESS FOR SAYING THAT, THAT WAS WAY RUDE.

Thanks for query,
Your father is not doing good at all.
He should take his medicines regularly.
Uncontrolled diabetes has many serious complications,affecting practically all vital organs.
Start taking medicines and go for regular blood sugar.
consult your doctor and evaluate his case as soon as possible.
Ok and bye.

What medications your dad is taking? He needs to take regualr medication and follow checkups. Diabetes though cannot be cured, it can be controlled by regular and appropriate medication, diet changes and exercises. If his sugar levels are more than 250, then he should be rushed to ER to control it. Sugar levels crosing 300 can lead to other complication leading to infections, amputations and sometimes even death. I am not trying to scare you, I am only letting you know what can go worse such that you can take care of your dad well.
