Hello,

Welcome to Justanswer

28 mmol/L (504 mg/dL) is pretty high blood sugar value.

You have declared in the "already tried" column that you have used insulin. Could you tell how many units of insulin has he used and which type has been prescribed for him?

Does he have fever? Does he seem drowsy to you?

Does his breath seem to be fruity in odor?
