Diabetic coma - anyone else experienced this?
My husband has had diabetes sicehewasin his 50s. He developed Pancrestis and almost died. A cyst resulted in his panaceas so he was operated on and developed diabetes a few months later. He had been doing well and his levels were getting perfect. He recently was in an accident and has severe back pain. He had a cortisone shot last week Tuesday and his sugar levels started rising. He knew they would go up and he took extra insulin. Sat morning he went into a diabetic coma. So scary. He was released from hospital Monday this week. His sugars have come down but are not perfect yet. His doctor has him taking 5 more lantus. Anyone out there who has had. A diabetic coma and knows ther course of treatment and how long it takes to have normal sugars
