I recently had a total hip replacement. My blood glucose is pretty well under control, but I find that when I am in the hospital my levels go up. Luckily, I left the hospital on the third day and got back in control. Does this happen to others?

I dont like being in the hospital at all. When Im there they will only give me insulin and then feed me food I wouldnt dare eat at home. I guess they think that insulin will cover what I eat. I didnt eat it so my BS stayed pretty normal.

I have had it go both up and down while in the hosp.
The too highs was because of infection (MRSA) and wounds.
The lows were after surgery and being on a liquid diet.
During the healing process (while in for weeks for infection and wound care, the Doctors wanted me to eat more carbs. That also, contributed to the higher BG and need for insulin.
