It might help if you could meet with the diabetics
and ask them about their own treatment. High blood
sugars put a diabetic at risk for
complications if they go on for a long time, but are not usually medical emergencies. The exception to this would be if a diabetic is running continually high numbers (300 or over) and begins to exhibit symptoms similar to flu such as vomiting, severe headache, etc. They could be suffering from DKA which is a medical emergency and needs a trip to the ER.
