I don’t know if this is a medical emergency or not. I checked my blood sugar a few hours after eating and it was higher than it has ever been–160. Then I checked it again an hour later and it was 168. I got really freaked out and thought the meter might be wrong so I reset it and did it again and then it was 177! Then I re-tried it and it was 192. Do I need to go to the hospital? This has NEVER happened to me before and I’m absolutely freaking out. I am afraid to check it again. Am I just going to die?
I checked my blood pressure and it was 128/72–high for me, but not that bad. I asked a roommate and she said I was probably making it go high by stressing out about it, but how can I not? Is there any quick way to bring it down? (I don’t take insulin and I’m supposedly pre-diabetic. My a1c was 5.5 at my last checkup so this is WAY out of range for me. Has this happened to anyone else, and what do you do about it? HELP!!!
