Hi and thanks for the query,

526 mg/dl is very high blood sugar.As you are experiencing symptoms as well i would suggest you to visit A&E because such high sugar can lead to diabetic ketoacidosis which is a known complication of high sugar and it needs to be treated in ER with intravenous fluids and insulin to avoid further problems.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Please do not forget to leave a positive rating by clicking on stars on top right corner.

Wish you good health

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.
