Does anyone have severely fluctuating blood sugar levels?


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....

    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!

    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.

    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.
