Brief Answer: You require immediate attention. Detailed Answer: Dear Friend Welcome to XXXXXXX I could elicite from the details that you are a diabetic and a hypertensive. But the blood pressure you have mentioned is low. Either you have typed it wrong or it's actually low. If it's actually this value. This requires admission. Blood sugar you have mentioned is very high. I recommend you following investigations: 1. Hemogram 2. Kidney function test 3. HbA1c 4. Urine routine and microscopy 5. ECG. You require immediate attention and blood sugar control else you could lend into a serious complication called as Diabetic Keto acidosis. If you are already on drugs for diabetes , and you have this reading , you will probably require insulin therapy. I hope I am able to answer your query , still if you have any query ask me.
