In brief: Call your doctor

If you haven't been diagnosed with diabetes, elevated blood sugars could mean that you need treatment for this condition.
If you've already been diagnosed, high blood sugars indicate poor control, and may require a medication adjustment or diet changes. Either way, your doctor can do testing and give advice about what your next step should be.

In brief: Adjust your therapy

If you have high blood sugars it may be that you are not taking enough medication such as insulin.
You also may be eating more than your medications or your own Insulin production can support. Additional exercise may also lower your blood sugars. Contact your physician and/or nurse educator and dietician to develop a therapy plan.
