Call from the Sister. She has spoken to someone from Royal Surrey Hospital in Guildford. There is no diabetes nurse allocated to Haslemere. They are recruiting a couple more soon. She then spoke with one of the diabetes doctors and told him about Helen. They advised her to increase the Lantus by 2 units and see how blood sugars are affected. She is on stat doses of Actrapid and has needed doses morning, lunchtime and evening. Her blood sugars are high, between 15-20+. I said to Mantumbi that this couldn't continue.
I have arranged to speak with the diabetes nurse at Basingstoke on Wednesday and will let them know what they say.
