From Norfolk, Virginia, USA:

My daughter set a hospital record with her sugar level, when diagnosed last week. She was wondering what the highest recorded record is. She's only seven, and I think this is a logical question for her. Can anyone help me find the answer?


There's a Letter to the Editor of Diabetes Care in the February, 1990 issue (on page 181-2) that seems to set the record: 5600 mg/dl (311.3 mmol/L). See a previous question for more details.
