There isn’t an exact number for blood sugars that indicate a diabetic emergency because every person and situation will be different. It also depends on how long the blood has been elevated in spite of treatment being given to lower it. Some people have had levels over 600 but did not go into DKA until after many hours or even days later. In general though, blood sugars should never remain above 200 mg/dL for more than one hour without treatment being started by someone with diabetes training such as yourself! If it stays at 300mg/dL for 30-60 minutes then insulin MUST be started ASAP since blood sugars can go as high as 500mg/dL and cause DKA. Other blood glucose monitors will beep when blood sugars are too high or too low but if you don’t have one of those, it’s important to check your blood sugar frequently so that you’ll know what is going on with yourself and take action accordingly!0Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsApp rtn 2021-09-29T18:40:01+05:30Added an answer on September 29, 2021 at 6:40 pm This blood sugar level should be a concern for you and other blood sugar readings over 200. If you’re already taking blood sugar lowering medication and your blood sugar is still over 100-150, you may need to make an appointment with your primary care doctor. If it’s above 200, it means that you’ve got diabetes and will need to make changes to your diet or start blood glucose lowering medicine.0Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppLeave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Add a Video to describe the problem better.
