My mother has diabeties and is now taking insulin shots 2 times a day.
She was at the Dr. and they did a sugar test and told her that it was 500. The dr. gave her some papers (by the waay she is 73 yrs. old) and told her to drive home and get her meds and go home and take a shot.
I was so mad at the dr. for his neglegance, what if she passed out coming home and then just giving her scripts and telling her to go and do that by herself. I wanted to call someone but I didn't know what to do. She lives in another state than I do.
Well, today she called and told me her legs have been giving out on her and she spent all day at the dr.s and took all kinds of tests and they didn't find anything wrong with her. They said they would call her tomorrow and see if she was all right and if not maybe admit her into the hospital.
All this sounds crazy to me. Her sugar goes from 500 to 90 the other day and she cut her insulin in half and the dr. said that was the right thing to do.
Please someone help me to figure this out.....please
