Hi guys,

Hope you are all well. Im just starting on my journey as a div2, and would love some help. A resident has a bgl of 19.6. She also suffers high blood pressure. Im trying to understand what the best interventions are for this resident. Given I believe that one intervention for hyperglycaemia is to give free fluids, to me this seems contradictory given she also has high blood pressure. If we give free fluids, wont this just increase her blood volume and in turn, contribute to a higher BP? I am showing my ignorance here I know, but would love your guys expert help on how to manage a scenario where someone's BGL is really high and they suffer high BP. This resident is on insulin. Thanks for any help.
Simon
