Dear Ma’am It is difficult to comment here with limited information. There are many reasons for fluctuations in blood sugar. Also he is on insulin and has other co-morbidities. Most important in the short term is to prevent any hypos ie blood sugar less than 60. Anything less than 72 should be corrected with 100mL of juice. Will need to know all medications and recent blood results. Please record all blood glucose values taken.
