This is something for which you need to consult your doctor immediately.

A blood sugar level above 15 mmol can cause ketoacidosis.

You should check your urine for ketones if you have the home test. If ketone is positive you need to go to the ER.

In any case you have to talk to the doctor immediately.

Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.
