RE: [IP] IV's and Dextrose

I too was recently in hospital and receiving an IV drip. I went over with my 
surgeon, anesthesiologist and nurse that I was diabetic, on insulin I did 
not was extra dextrose in the feed. I thought everyone was clear, and I woke 
up with a blood glucose of 500+. They had put 100 grams of dextrose in my 
IV.  They later described that amount of carbohydrates as small.
