My sister has had diabetes her entire life, she is a special needs person, now 49 years old and her diabetes is fluctuating rapidly. One morning her blood sugar will be 44 and the next it will be 504....has anyone ever had this problem. Someone mentioned it may be her thalmus gland....

Monitor her blood sugars at least every two hours and record them along with what she eats for two weeks to give your doctor a baseline of how her sugars are fluctuating so they can make the proper adjustments.
Yamabushikaze-thank you so much for all your very helpful info. I am forwarding both comments onto my parents (my sister has a 4th grade level of understanding) so that they can address your suggestions to her Dr. I sincerely appreciate your advice
Thankfully since I asked this question, her diabetes situation is much better. She is in a new home where she is monitored around the clock by nurses and doctors and she is doing exceptionally well. Thanks to all for your great comments!
Thanks Chris! I will check out Diabetes Solution. We talked about an insulin pump but she is not able to regulate something like that on her own. She has been in and out of the hospital and they don't seem to know what to do either.
