Thanks for your details. I have reviewed your symptoms & history in detail and come to the conclusion that blood sugar of 390mg/dl is a medical emergency, any sugar levels above 250mg/dl should be treated in ER because there is not any thing available OTC or at home which can bring your sugar normal. You need to visit ER at the earliest and they will take care of your sugar levels with the help of insulin mostly or other measures. Best wishes and dont delay to visit ER. Best wishes and drink plenty of fluids. Always make now your habit of taking medications for sugar levels regularly as prescribed.
