In brief: Prevention is better
Prevention is better than treatment.
If prevention didn't happen, doing light exercise (easy walking) for 30-60 minutes will help. Drinking water will help dehydration from the effects of high sugars on the kidneys. Not eating any more carbs until the sugar comes down will keep it from getting worse. Medications might help, but this would need to be discussed in advance with your own doctor.
