Diabetes, blood sugar level rising even after taking insulin. Is it serious or can i wait?

I had an injection of injectafer 750mg/15m today and I am a diabetic my blood sugar is rising this evening and it is now up to 248 at present I have taken short term insulin but it keeps rising I do have a call in to my doctor but I am worried that perhaps I should proceed to the hospital rather than wait for the return call. I am not sure what to do. Can you suggest or help me? YYYY@YYYY

Hello,

Your blood sugar is quite high and is not coming to control even with insulin. In this situation it is advisable to consult a doctor right away. So proceeding to the hospital is a better idea then waiting.
