My fathers blood suger was so low, Could I have helped him without calling the police ?

My father's blood suger was so low it was at 1 I called 911 did I do the right thing? I came home from school and i found him in his chair sweating really bad and he wouldn t talk or even look at me but he was still breathing so I called 911. He was alone at home when I got there cause my mom works full time. it scared me so much and all I could think was call 911 and get help. They said he would have died if i had not gotten their at the time i did. I was supposed to go to a friends house but I didn t cause i felt sick. Could I have helped him without calling the police ?

You did the right thing. Let him be cautious of the diet and drugs. Should not take the medicine if he is not taken proper food. Also let him keep a pack of glucose with him at all times so that he eat it once he feels low sugar level. Do recheck the blood sugar levels and if it happens often even with right food then the medications or dosage or both have to be changed.
