Is it possible for someone to go to coma due to blood sugar?

Is it really possible for someone who has sugar problems to go into coma because of it? My mother has really bad sugar problems. She doesn t like buying soda for me and my brother because of the sugar content within the soda. Is it really possible for someone who has sugar related problems to go into coma because of their sugar being too high or too low?

yes people suffering from diabetes can go into coma if the sugar levels in blood do become critically low. if the blood glucose levels are very high than also they lapse into coma. so either too low or too high blood levels can produce coma in the diabetics

General & Family Physician Dr. JItendra Sharma's  Response
Yes going into coma with high and low sugar is very common. More so with low sugar. So the treatment of diabetes needs to be regulated.
