Dear Anon,

Thank you for your post.

Drinking plenty of water and having a protein snack can be helpful when blood sugar rises. However, blood sugar readings that remain high for more than 24 hours without coming down (and after an effort has been made to lower them), need to be addressed by your doctor.
