In brief: Very likely diabetes
You need to be checked for diabetes.
Especially if you are having symptoms of diabetes out of control, such as, excessive urination, thirst , and/or hunger. If you have diabetes it is not controlled. Either way you need to see a doctor and soon.

In brief: High blood sugar
Blood sugars can be tested by using a "fingerstick" prick and a device that checks the concentration of sugar in the blood.
Normally well below 200, thus 423 is very high and indicates poorly controlled diabetes and 241 is mildly elevated.
