Hi Doctor, My father has Cataract surgery tomorrow. They said
My father has Cataract surgery tomorrow. They said if the sugar is above 200 they will do only when it comes down. 10days before his sugar was 140 and he missed taking tablets for 5days and today his sugar is 260. Is it possible to control it overnight and bring it to 200 by morning?
He can try insulin injection
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
In short period of time, it can be brought down with regular insulin as an iv infusion. You can consult internal medicine specialist or an emergency depart for the same.
Hope it helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
