As, you have rightly said , INSULIN is the drug of choice for fixing very high BGL , as there would be severe dehydration associated with high BGL , which would require hydration through I/V access. Insulin becomes the first priority , in case not may be Oral medication becomes the next but wouldn't correct to the core deficit.
