Black stools. High sugar levels. Need to worry?

Hello, I have a question concerning my father. He noticed yesterday that his stool was black and was a little worried. The day before he wasn t feeling to well, his blood sugar level was a bit high, near 300. He didn t drink any pepto bismol. Is this something to worry about? If it was only once this happened should he be concerned? Thanks Hugo
