    Hi you need to seek medical help Meg, it's above 3 which is the point at which you need to seek assistance, you may be feeling ok but it's a very quick onset so getting help is really important. Please let us know you have done so ?

    Those levels together suggest you should be seeking help immediately, @diabeticmegxo . Have you called the medics?
