    Yes - sugar levels change constantly all day long.  Managing diabetes is about learning to eat the right foods that will help avoid the after meal spikes that might happen.

    She is diabetic and her medication is not working well enough - or she is making poor diet choices.  You need to contact her doctor and get better control of her sugar levels.  Even as a diabetic, the goal would be to stay around 150 and avoid spikes that go over 200.  (or whatever levels her doctor recommends for her - but when levels stay above 200 for extended periods of time - that is when damage is being done to blood vessels and the risks of other conditions related to diabetes would be increasing.  

    Talking with a dietitian about diet management for diabetes would be a good idea too.

    Yes. No one has constantly level blood sugar level. Your mom is definitely diabetic and should be on medication of some kind ASAP.
