In brief: Elevated blood sugar

Depending on what time of day those blood sugar readings are taken, it could mean you have an elevated blood sugar level.
If those values are while you are fasting (like when you first get up in the morning) then you may have diabetes. If they are after you eat, they still are a little elevated and you are at risk for diabetes. See your doctor for evaluation.

In brief: Likely diabetes

2 blood sugar levels > 200 can diagnose diabetes, so please see your pcp to confirm this with a blood draw value and a1c.
Earlier treatment means less complications for you.
