Our expert says:
It is advisable to have your father admitted to hospital for a few days to control his blood sugar. A reading of 13 is rather high and stands to reason that his glucose is not well controlled. It is also possible that he has electrolyte abnormalities, due to the gastroenteritis, as well as the abnormal glucose readings. If it is not diagnosed and treated correctly, his recouperation can take a very long time.
