In brief: Many consequences

You can get dehydrated with very high blood sugar.
This can lead to fatigue, dizziness, confusion... At high enough number, you can get very confused, go into coma and if not treated correctly and timely, death can occur. The first thing to do if your bs start climbing is to start drinking water, then seek help (call physician...).
