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

what is the level of creatinine that can cause an individual go into comatose? My mother in law is at the ICU and has full blown kidney failure. And her creatinine level has reached to over 6.0. When she was in the ER, it was 3.2 Fridays ago. My husband is in the process of making a decision to remove the respiratory tubes, and he can't make that decision until she slips into coma. Right now, they are making her comfortable and can't treat her. They advised against dialysis because she has no muscle mass and has multiple problems. She has no muscle in her diaphram which is why she is on life support indefinitely.
