Hello and welcome to healthcare forum.
The upper limit of postprandial blood sugar is up to 140 and above that is considered as uncontrolled if it is persistantly higher.
So, in long term this much level of blood sugar con also be fatal and therefor you are advised to consult you physician to increase the dose of drug or to change the drug.
