Were your blood sugars 200 and then 350? Either way diabetes is likely. If you've omitted all concentrated sweets (candy,pastry,syrups,sugar dry drinks,ice cream) and reduced starches(bread,pasta,rice,pizza)& are still running those high blood sugar levels, head to a clinic. If you haven't followed a diet but feel well, start diet,keep hydrated &see MD Monday.

Monday is ok. Is it high after you eat? Or fasting. Keep record share with Dr. if peeing a lot and losing weight and feeling sick I would go to walk in clinic.
