Should I go to the hospital?
I'm 14. 115 pounds. My blood sugar is 215. I'm shaking. Do I go or not? Or wait an hour and re-check it?
                      









tim g
check 2 hours after eating. avoid sugar.


John
I would go ASAP. Just for saftey. Go to the ER. I would not wait because it could result deadly. Just be on the safe side go to the ER.


tumbles77
yes, you need to go and find out what is causing your sugar to be so high. unless this is a common occurance for you and you know what's wrong and how to fix it.

You should try drinking lots of water and check it again. If it doesn't go down or you feel worse, then you should go to the ER for it.


Soccer Chic
Go now and stay calm

Just say you need to see a doctor you are probally nervous so you are shaking mor than you should be.

Have someone else drive you though for an extra saftey percaution

Its your body and if you feel you need medical attention now, go with your gut. However, 215 is not an emergency situation and shouldn't require a rush trip to the hospital. You can easily bring your blood sugars down with taking your meds (oral or insulin), avoiding carbs until it comes down, drinking plenty of water and some exercise.
As a diabetic a number like that will not be uncommon.

If you take your insulin or oral med, re-check in about 1 -2 hours assuming its fast acting. If your blood sugars continue to elevate, call your dr.

I have had diabetes for 15 years.

Getting sugar over 215 is very comon for diabetics.

A blood glucose of 215 is no big deal, especially if you just ate. It is not a reason to go to the ER.

If you are a type one, you should be checking your urine for ketones if your sugar is high and you feel bad. Most pharmacies have ketone test strips.

Ketoacidosis is the only real bad thing that could be associated with blood glucose over 200 mg/dl. Primarily an issue for type 1's or type 2's with much higher blood glucose.

215 shouldn't be high enough to give you the shakes. You should be ok to wait.


Miz Lamb
I don't shake when my glucose is going up! only when it is getting under 60.

And for the average diabetic 215 is not a bad number. When it goes over what your meter can read, then get worried.

Call your doctor first thing Monday morning. Take your meds, eat good balanced foods, get a good nights sleep.

215 is NOT a number high enough for you to go to the hospital.

350 is probably a number where you should consider taking the trip. You are probably shaking from nerves thinking that you may have to go to the hospital. 215 is NOT usually high enough for you to get the shakes. People usually get the shakes from LOW blood sugar, not high blood sugar.
