High blood sugar level.

Q: I have just noticed my blood sugar went up to 244. I quit eating sweets and carbs which have helped lower it under 120. I am 75. Is this part of aging? Or do I need to see a doctor. Thanks.

A: You should see a doctor.  A blood sugar level of 244 is high.  You may have diabetes. To learn more about diabetes that starts late in life go to diabetes.org.
