If your blood glucose is 490 and you have washed your hands and checked again with similar results you should probably be calling 911 or going to the emergency room. This is not something to be messing around with. You could be headed for big trouble and just don't know it yet.

The first poster is right. Best to test it again. Make sure your strips are not expired, too.

If it truly is that high, you need a visit to the ER. That number is too high where you can pass out anywhere at any time.

There is no way to get your blood sugar down within normal range unless you have insulin. If you drink lots of water, it will come down somewhat. You still will need some professional help to get it within normal range.
