Deat patient,

If you mother is not insulin dependent, that means that she has Type 2 diabetes that mean that she is on another antidiabetic medication. 280 is a high sugar and if she is taking her medication then probably the dose needs to be adjusted to get better control over her blood sugar levels. It is advisable that you visit your doctor and he will decide further alteration of her medication. Also, she should be on a diabetic diet and I would advise regular exercise which will be of assistance in lowering her blood sugar levels. Other then that she should continue with her COPD treatment as advised by the doctor.

warm regards

Do not panic, you are trying to save your mom, in fact it is a warning situation than panicky one. You just have to keep her emotionally help her. Generally doctors recommend insulin during disease states and whent he bS crosses 350mg/dl.
