I've been diagnosed with Renal failure, and suffer from very high potassium levels.
Lately I am having a problem with extremely high blood sugar levels. Between 400-600+. I have been increasing my 2 shots a day, now at 45 units a.m. and p.m. (lantus) And Apidra on a sliding scale. I plan to see my doctor this week.
Question is…is there a connection with all these problems?

Is there a connection to all this??? Before the experts start to answer your question, I like to know, how long have you been a diabetic, and WHO IS YOUR DOCTOR??? …welcome to DC by the way, wish had met you sooner…

Been a diabetic since 1992. Dr. Alam is primary doc.
Thanks for the welcome.

I apologize for sounding harsh…I wish the best for you, I really do. To answer your question, unless you have other kidney impairments, diabetes is most likely the cause. who diagnose you with renal failure, what did he tell you? see, no one here has your medical record, all we can do is guess, your dr should have explained all this to you already…if he didn't, ask him; if he doesn't explain to you, it is time you find a different dr…I am afraid that is all I have for you for now…good luck!
