    With blood sugars that high, I would phone 999 or go to A&E. In the meantime you need to stay hydrated, follow sick days rules taking extra insulin.

    I hope everything is ok with you and you managed to lower your bg. One day my bg was so high l that the blood glucose meter went off scale twice with a break of 2 hours before my bg fell to 32.1. But everything went well without even calling a doctor. I want to say that everything will be fine with you, too. It's really great that you called 111! Tell us how it went. Are you feeling better now?
