Hyperglycemia and DKA

Question from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, USA:

What is the highest blood sugar on record where the diabetic did survive? Last year, I was in a diabetic coma and my sugar was 1772. We didn't know I had diabetes.

Answer:

Sorry (?), but you didn’t set any record: See a previous question and the apparent record is 5600 mg/dl (311.3 mmol/L).
