The levels up to 100 are considered normal, and levels between 100 and 126 are considered pre-diabetes. Most people who have had a blood glucose level over 500mg are considered to be into uncontrolled diabetis. When blood glucose level gets over 500mg, generally, the cause is uncontrolled diabetes. The effects of having a consistent high blood glucose level over 500mg can be devastating on the body which can cause complications such as heart disease and stroke, blindness, hypertension, diabetic neuropathy, nerve damage, depression, complications with feet, kidney disease and limb amputation.

my brother has just been admitted to the hospital with his sugar level over 500. He has recently been dropping weight. He has never been overweight to begin with. He has cramping in his legs and urinating a lot during the night. All signs of diabetes. Even at a level of more than 500, is it likely that this problem is manageable and he will probably be ok. I know with levels that high, he could have gone into a coma. I know about this because with my last pregnancy three years ago, I developed gestational diabetes. Thank you, A very worried sister.
My friend is staying with me and is insulin dependant diabetic. Her blood sugar at 10:30 EST was over 600, she adjusted her pump and retested 30 min later and it was down to 563. She plans to check again in 30 min. Should she still seek emergency treatment if over 500 but lower?
