Comment from: Tanya, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: September 22

My blood glucose levels need to be in the 400 range for me to feel normal. If I get down to the 180-200 range I feel like I am dying. The highest it got before though, while I was sick, was 625. I was hospitalized for food poisoning and they had me on IV insulin. The doctor said, with those numbers and a few others I should have been dead or least in a coma. I take insulin due to not having a lot at levels in the 550 range. I wonder if any of this is normal.
