    Hello Bilqeesa,
    Your mother's fasting levels of 11.6 mmol/dl is equal to 210 mg/dl. This is very high for a fasting level. You need to call her doctor to evaluate her diabetes and also to let the doctor know about the boil. This is something that should not wait.
    Please let us know how she makes out.

    Hello Bilqeesa,
    Your mothers fasting blood glucose is very high. 11.6 mmol/l= 209 mg/dl. Have her call her doctor immediately to see if she what changes need to be made to help get her glucose under control and to look at the boil under her knee. The boil should be looked at by her doctor as there is risk of infection. Please let us know how she makes out.
