- Nov 14, '12 by squatmunkie_RNNovolog TID with meals usually solves that.
- Nov 18, '12 by ClearBlueOctoberSkyAre the supplementals sugar free? Even if they are, they might still cause increases in the BGLs.
- Nov 19, '12 by KitkatPRNThank you for the responses. This gentleman did pass peacefully yesterday. His care was comfort focused for the last week, with family and MD making this choice.
- Nov 20, '12 by Esme12Ahhhh....may thoughts are for his family. Bless you for caring so much!

- Dec 27, '12 by mammac5I realize this case is closed, so to speak, since the passing of the gentleman in question. I would just like to add that I am very impressed with the original poster. Kudos to you for using your critical thinking skills in considering what may have been causing this g'man (previously undiagnosed with DM) to exhibit very high and hard to control blood glucose. I have worked with loads of experienced RNs who do not put that much thought into the care of their diabetic patients and you really are to be commended!
