Diabetologist 's  Response

Your sister is a Diabetics with on and off increase of blood sugars.
It is very important to under the blood sugar at the early stage of the disease.
It helps in control of the blood sugars in the long run and prevents or delays diabetes related complications to the vital organs.
Some reasons for this may be that she may be having Brittle diabetes or her insulin resistance may be more.
