MY sons glucose is 290, do I keep him home w/t fluids ?

son's glucose is 290, do I keep him home w/t fluids ? Or, should he go to ER, seems ok, eating, just kinda tired, better than yesterday. He ate some soup and jello about 1/2 before the reading. we just found out he has type 2 on Fri, this is our first weekend, and everything is still new. He has been drinking sf koolaid and sf jello, and chk noodle soup, 1/2 turkey sand/chips. Says he feels dizzy, his last reading was 332. we are spending the night at the hosp., they have his d. under control, down to 190 right now, but, now we are told he is type 1, and they ve started insulin. Wish me Luck! :)

Do not panic, since you have recently found about it you just need to remember two things. Always keep the blood sugar under control, this should be by Diet, exercise and wt loss. Glucose 290 is very high though but you need to put him under constant surveillance under nursing care before he controls the sugar and comes back home.

I m 61, 290 lbs, 6 2 tall, male and diet controlled diabetic. My blood glucose is at 325 four hours after a fish sandwich for lunch with a low glycimic cookie for a snack an hour ago - normally glucose level is below 200 with a fasting level of between 100 and 120. Yesterday I had a Transforaminal Epidural Injection (TFESI) in my neck. I was told the steroids could (would) play games with my blood sugar, but other than a nasty headache, I feel fine. Is 325 normal or anything to be concerned about under the circumstances?

hello. i am a 24 yr old female. i have asthma. For the past 6 years i experiance bouts of extreme fatigue, swollen chin and auxillary nodes, diarrhea, muscle pain and weakness, small headaches, gerd, and my skin is always tender to the touch to the point were hugs are painful and also something as small as snapping my fingers hurts. It also seem sthat my tolerance for pain has greatly diminished. Also, i have no to low sex drive and my mentral cycles have always been irregular, ocurring from 2-3 months, where now i have gone 6 months without one, occuring. I have had a million blood tests at the doctors and he can never seem to find anything physically wrong with me other than insulin resistance. I was reading about cfs/ fibro and wondering if this sounds like what it could be. Medical history: Asthma 20 yrs.(i have been intubated twice due to asthma attacks) Insulin Resistance.

I have friend who has hep C and diabetes 2. He was in the hospital for dehydration and heat exhaustion. They hydrated him and he responded quite well. All his vitals were good. They put him on an IV drip with ativan and hydrocone, something for gastric acid and insulin. He has never had insulin before. But he started to shiver and tremble. He was on this drip for two days. He cannot function very well now. It is hard for him to control his elimination functions and he tremble quite a bit. I feel that the hydrocodone affect him very bad it was 5/500 because of the tylenol in it. . Before he dehydrated, he had a panel done and he was stable in all areas. His liver enzymes were elevated a little; but he was basically stable. What can he take to help recover?
