Default Glucose Reading

Hello Everyone
I'm 66 and was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 15 years ago.

Just had a reading of 25. (MMol/L). I feel okay and I am wondering at what stage is time to go to a doctor? My view is that if it doesn't come down then its time to go and not wait, till morning in my case.

In the short term, ie overnight, is it a case of how you feel?

From what I have read 22. (MMol/L) is where the danger of coma starts but some people are still walking around with 33. (MMol/L). Anything over 10 (MMol/L) causes one's body to degenerate within a very few years.

Drink a lot of water so your body can get rid of some of the glucose.

If this is way out of the ordinary for you, then wash your hands again and retest! errors do happen!

I was diagnosed three years ago with a fasting figure of 22 mmol/L and was in the process of going into DKA.

My advice is to seek help - now!

Definitely time to get to a doc. As the others have said you're pushing some boundaries you would rather not want to cross.

I would start looking for an ER, if a retest confirms that reading.
