2 questions on DM Management:
1) 3 cups of coffee a day, pt not eating at all (pt is scared to eat CHO as it will raise his BS, was educated on not eating also keeps BS elevated), blood sugars still in 200-300s even on 20U insulin and SSI. does the coffee affect the BS at all?
(will be asking MD to add oral agent)
2) what's the latest? low blood sugars, adv patient spoonful of sugar to incr sugar only to crash later, or glass of juice? The education material I have suggests spoonful of sugar. Is that right? I'm confused now. (not sure what meds pt is on)
