I was doing a case of HONK on USMLE CONSULT and the patient had finger stick of 1100. The USMLE kept on doing tests and tests without starting insulin and deducted 4 points if you start insulin before..... They started insulin in the end. Shouldn't we start insulin iv the moment we come to know the pt has extremely high glucose?
