What is the highest ever recorded blood sugar?
My blood sugars at 14 years old when I was admitted for my 1st DKA was 76.4 mmol/L, I was pretty ill But Im almost positive my sugars have been higher on a couple other visits considering I was worse but non of the whole puking like on the 1st visit, But then again the only time I really ever puked on a DKA visit was the first time an I was in there plenty after that, I would say it is posiable to have a sugar level recorded that high an still be awake, your body gets used to your sugars running high, like mine kinda, I ran high for sooo long I mean years of highs, millions of times I have done my sugars an they have read just HIGH that means over 33.3 on the normal meters everyday people had, My sugars now run at 17-25 everyday, I get a few 2.1, 3.4 but thats when I take insulin an PLAN on eating but then dont, If my blood sugars get to between 8-13 I feel like Im starting to go low (under 4) But I do my sugars an Im not, I think its all in weather you have good control or not, Im thinking micheals parents didnt look after him very well cause my diabetes was under control when my mom was taken care of it, but then when I started at 14 it went downhill, there is no reason for a boy 12 years old to have that high of a blood sugar unless his parents let him eat a bag of sugar???
how? my reading at diagnosis was 30.3, the medical professionals had never seen readings so high before. I find a reading of 131mmol quite hard to believe considering how ill I was.
my ketones were well above the dangerous level of 3, at 6.2 my body was cannablising itself for fuel - I can't even imagine what they would be at if my BG level was 131.
congrats to michael for being alive with such readings. does anyone know if he is still alive?
Actually my uncle just recently sept. of 2009, Frank James in Ca, was admitted with blood sugar level of 3,456. The nurse said, "I have been a nurse for 21 years, and never in my life have I seen blood sugar level so high, and I remember the exact number cause it was 3 4 5 6."
I found this on menshealth.about.com.
Michael Dougherty at 12 years old in November 1995 was found to have a blood sugar level of 2,350 (131 mg/L) and was still conscious. The normal blood sugar range is between 80-120 (4-7).
My husband's was diagnosed as 1,879.He was near coma level but made a full recovery within 3 to 4 days.This is when we found out he had Type 1 diabetes.
