The TPN solution contains a very high concentration of glucose. Your body will often times be able to regulate your blood glucose levels, but in some cases, while you are on TPN, your blood sugar levels may be elevated.
When you were in the hospital did they check your blood sugars daily using a glucometer. I know that was our practice and not sure it is current.
Are you on insulin and if you have a high reading do you use insulin according to your BS reading? You do not have to share this if you choose not to :)
