Hi,
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actuailly the two readings that you have mentioned of a 398 glucose and 192/97 BP are extremely high. At levels this high for either of them you can develop various complications, these can include,

Heart attacks

Strokes

Loss of consciousness

Renal failure

Damage to the intestinal blood vessels

Secondly at these levels you need to have your insulin adjusted and need to get this evaluated AS SOON AS POSSIBLE because of the reasons i have highlighted above.

I would STRONGLY suggest that you head to the ER or urgent care and get these things under control with the help of IV medications.

Do you have any more questions?

Please leave a POSITIVE rating by clicking on the stars above, until you do i am not compensated for my time. You can continue to ask follow-up questions even after the POSITIVE rating. You can also ask questions from me directly by going on the link below,

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
