That is very high BG

normal BG never goes over 140

with BG like that she is on the fast train to getting complications like
going blind
kidney failure
hart attack
loosing feeling in her feet getting an infection (cant feel the pain) because of reduced blood flow to the feet (due to high BG) resaulting in gang-green

BG that high is a serous matter!
