My Blood Sugar Is 368?

what happens to my body when my blood sugar is 368 Are you sure you want to delete this answer? Best Answer: Relax. You will be ok. Many diabetics have this happen once in a while. Blood sugar is more likely to get like this if you have a cold, flu or an infection. But you need to take care of it now. You shoudl not fo to sleep until you have your blood sugar at least under 200 and stable. Stable meaning not go up or down quickly. Dont exercise until your blood sugar is below 250. Exercise now could make things worse. Test for ketones if you have ketone test strips. If it seems high to you, call your doctor. If you are on insulin, calculate the amount you need to take (as directed by your doctor), inject it and wait. Don't over treat it. You will get bad low blood sugar later. Check your blood sugar ever 30 minutes until it is below 200. If it goes below 200 withing a few hours, or makes good progress, be happy. If not call your doctor. Upload failed.

    Blood sugar suddenly really high?

    I've been noticing I've been hungrier than usual lately, and while I do take my insulin before I eat, I noticed just now when I took my sugar that it was 368, and it said "ketones?" at the top. I took insulin for it to go down, but it's
    still at 310 right now. It's bothering me a lot, the idea of my sugar being this high, because I wanted to work out today but I heard it's bad if you might have ketones. And I'm in college taking classes, I can't miss more than a specific number of classes for any reason or else I fail, so staying at the hospital can't happen. I haven't been too thirsty, or going to the bathroom a lot, just hungrier than usual. I don't understand why it's so high though, if I'm taking my insulin before my meals and trying to keep a healthy diet, although high in protein. Anyone have any ideas?

    Regarding the issue of ketones and exercise see this from the Joslyn center ~ http://www.joslin.org/info/why_cant_i_exercis...
    I am wondering, if you are not having good results from your insulin injections, perhaps your insulin is past its useful life. Check the vial for the date when it expires. And whenever you start a new vial, write down when you started using from it. Generally speaking the insulin is past its useful life after 28 days of being opened.
    God's best to you and yours

    To get the ketones the sugars have to be high for a couple of days. I too have have some off sugar. They just happen sometimes. No matter what you do, even when you do everything tight, the sugars go high. They happen sometimes. Everything people have said is correct, check for infections, stress etc. However, even when those thing are fine, you will have an occasional day or two where the sugars just don't make any sense. I hate those days most of all. Once I dial in my glucose levels I am fine. A few other note, check your insulin. I have had high day then I changed my insulin bottle and things went back to normal. If you are on a pump change your set and insulin.
