Last night I had a client who was taking IV steroids for some lung issues. Of course her blood sugars had increase, and I got an order to administer some insulin per a sliding scale. The woman was coherent, under 40 years of age, and once I explained why and what we were doing, she acknowledge she fully understood.
Then she said, “My sugars are usually always high anyways. My ovaries don’t make eggs, they never have. They make sugar.”
All I could do is say ok, and walk out.
