There are couple of factors which can cause high fasting blood sugar levels.
In people with type 2 diabetes,liver dumps more sugar in the blood during night and since there is associated insulin resistance present,it results in even more high levels of fasting blood sugar levels.
Your post meal blood sugar levels are also very high and it becomes very important on your part to control your blood sugar levels throughout the day.
Uncontrolled diabetes can result in various micro as well as macro vascular complications in future which tend to damage various internal organs like heart,kidney,eyes,nerves,blood vessels etc.
Consult your doctor and take proper medicines to control your sugar levels.
Make sure to control your blood pressure and blood lipids as well.
Control your diet and avoid high carbohydrate and fatty diet.
Avoid sugar and colas.
Do regular aerobic exercises for 45 minutes a day.
Along with control of sugar levels,your target BP should be below 120/80  and LDL cholesterol  below 80 and triglycerides below 150 .

Welcome to HCM,
Your blood sugar is more than 300 mg/dl,you are diabetic and I am wondering why you are not taking treatment already.
Please visit your doctor tomorrow and take care of Diabetic diet 25 Kcal /kg body weight and anti diabetic medicine as prescribed by your doctor and also take care of exercise regularly.
It is important to take care of blood sugar level to prevent ccomplications of diabetes.
Please see if you are over weight try to reduce some weight.
In my opinion if blood sugar level is too high then we can start with Insulin therapy to control blood sugar level.
Diabetes is long term management with drugs,diet and exercise, in case you take alcohol or smoke please stop both as they are harmful .
Please take care
Good Luck.
