I don't think you realize how high your numbers are. When someone has very high blood sugar and has to be hospitalized, they usually aren't released until their blood sugar is down to 200, and even that is high. Damage can be done to your body at 140 and above (and even at numbers that are lower than that). First, as the others said, get to the doctor or ER at once, then try to get and keep your sugar at and below 120 at all times.

If you don't know what to eat... eat meat, fish, poultry, eggs, real cheese (not processed) and tossed salad with low carb dressing. You can also have green beans, spinach and cabbage, plus only veggies that are low on the glycemic index.

I don't know if you can tell by our posts, but many of us are very concerned about you. Please take care of this situation and keep us posted.

As you are finding with your bg meter, things like rice are deadly to a diabetic. Once you get to a doctor and get on meds/insulin you should be aiming for bgs in the 100 range when you wake up. When you eat the proper food you really shouldn't see more than a 40 point spike. That is why we say 140 should be the highest you go after eating. No one knows where blood vessel damage begins but the common theory is above 140. But I know personally when my bgs stay above 120 I start to get symptoms. I hope you have made an appointment to see your doctor but in the meantime don't eat rice, cereal, bread or fruit. That should help your bgs a little. By the time many D's are diagnosed we have already lost over 1/2 of our insulin producing beta cells. The longer you stay at higher bgs the more beta cells are destroyed. Once they are gone they don't come back. So please seek treatment.

You can take the meter with you and let the doc see the readings you've gotten, and he'll surely order blood work. Let us know what your lab results are & what treatment he recommends. I am very relieved that you're getting in to see him. You're going to feel so much better when you can get those levels down & under control.
