    Are your blood sugars still that high, if so I would, if I where you, be in the A&E at the hospital seeking medical attention are you able to test for ketones. I realy would not leave it till tomorrow there is a risk of DKA with sugars at that level.

    Good luck, I agree with the above posters. Low carb and such blood sugars are alarming. Please let us know how things are going.

    Please consider going to A&E. This is very worrying.
