My mother has been on a feeding tube since July because of multiple strokes triggered by afib which was caused by c. diff and severe diahrea causing severe loss of electrolytes.  My mother has had three sepsis infections and the last one was in August of 2018, which almost killed her.  Lately, she's been on antibiotics for a UTI and her sugars have been in the 400s.  Can that be a sign of sepsis?
The blood sugar isn't an indicator to sepsis. We have other tests for sepsis,such as white blood cell counts, CRP, ESR,PCT. Of course when the blood sugar goes high it's a risk factor to infection. Is your mother on insulin? Has the medical team try anything to lower down the blood glucose?
