Too high: Yu certainly have DM that is not controlled at this time. Over 400 is too high and if persists, you will need to go to the emergency room. Call your Dr. ASAP and get in for an evaluation and adjustment of medication, dietary counseling, and advice on Therapeutic lifestyle changes. Basically, you need to establish care with a Doctor who will provide you with continuity of care and DM management.
