What is the highest blood sugar you ever had ?

Besides the blood sugar when you were diagnosed. Mine is 417 It wasn't today. I really can t remember what is was from. It came back down right away though, it wasn't up there for too long. I am pretty sure it was stress related though.

Hey 417 is is too very high. Are you sure your sugars are controlled? Do you have a stressful life? Then take control of the stressors. Stress is known to make sugars rise, but to this extent, i dint know. You may suddenly have a stroke also. Get your sugar levels checked and medications reviwed.

Hi. 417 is a really high reading. Not quite sure how much is the limit but readings above 500 might lead you to a coma and irreversiable complications. Please take care
