Justice Sonia Sotomayor 'fine' after treatment for low blood sugar



The Supreme Court says Justice Sonia Sotomayor is "doing fine" after emergency medical personnel treated her at home for symptoms of low blood sugar on Friday morning.

The court's public information office says in a statement that Sotomayor experienced symptoms of low blood sugar --as Sotomayor is diabetic.

The court says she later came to work and "resumed her usual schedule." The justices held a private conference Friday.

“She was treated by D.C. Emergency Medical Services and is doing fine,” court spokeswoman Kathleen Arberg said in a statement. “She came to work, followed her usual schedule, and will be participating in planned activities over the weekend.”

Sotomayor, who is 63, was diagnosed with diabetes as a child.

She has said she treats her Type 1 diabetes with regular testing of her blood sugar and insulin injections and glucose tablets, according to the Washington Post.

The incident was first reported by Politico.
