I am worried about my friend next door. She is 91. I go over to visit etc. she has 24 hr care now and yesterday her bg was 230 before her meal- The caregiver tests it before she eats.
She has been on Metformin in the past and sometimes on insulin when she fell and was in a rehab center several times but they always took her off of it.
Her father had type 2 and died from heart related issues. He was on insulin for a long time. Hers was never treated until a few years ago I think and with metformin and diet.
Her ct said her bg has been as high as 500! And a nurse who comes to visit said she should drink water if it is high.
I’m pretty alarmed that a treatment appears to be that she is getting is told to drink water and I just don’t know if there’s anything I can do about this. Any ideas? I couldn’t even tell if she’s still on Metformin now from asking the caretaker. The last time I was there she told me her blood sugar was around 130 most of the time which is what it was when she tested her then.
