My husband has had two episodes of temporary high blood sugars in a month. He is on an insulin pump. His blood sugars will spike to 600+ and will not come down even with large amounts of insulin from his pump and sub Q. We have checked out the pump(it's working) we have changed his infusion site. He has not eaten anything abnormal. He has had diabetes for 20 years. He has been put in the hospital both times and an insulin drip of 20 units per hour has finally brought it down. There are no infections per doctors. He has had a million blood test and ultrasound of the abdomen and kidneys. Nothing has showed up. Help, this is extremely scary.
