I am a professional nurse in one of the health care clinics in Ekurhuleni East. Working in the chronic disease department I’ve noticed that certain individuals’ blood sugar is always upwards of 20mmol/L whenever they come for routine check-up and collection of treatment.
What baffles me is that they come in unaware of their state, with no physical signs or symptoms. Some of them are already on 12 hourly insulin. I want to know what could be the cause, why would diabetes mellitus be uncontrollable sometimes?
