How does this pill work? I am the caretaker for my mom who has type 2 diabetes. Sometimes, when she stays home because she does not feel like attending the daycare she is reluctant for me to call the home health agency to come and inject her insulin which is at 13 units per day. I have had incidents where she has raised BSL close to 600 range and I start panicking !!

Is this pill fast acting? the issue with my mum is that she won't eat same amounts day to day. So, I have to be constant monitoring the blue pill intake. I worry she might have a stroke when showing this BSL. She always says she feels fine when it happens but I believe the inside of her body is the one in danger.

Any suggestions and comments are appreciated. Thank you....

Well, one solution would be to learn how to inject her insulin yourself. It's actually a very simple procedure that almost anyone can learn to do quickly and easily.

And no, high blood sugars won't cause a stroke, but you are correct that her insides are in danger, it basically burns up the organs. It doesn't happen instantly, but the effects are cumulative over time.

Have you talked to her doctor?

If her levels are going that high, the tablets aren't going to be strong enough and work fast enough to bring it down.
