I have blood sugar 419. How much insulin should I take to bring it down to normal ?

I m a diabetic, But, i ve never been this high before, how much insulin do I take to bring it down to normal. for those of you who are saying you are shocked, I just went and checked it again just to make sure, and It was now 420. To the person asking if it was a joke, no it s not, I feel miserable. I just took 15 units of humalog as one of you suggested about 5 minutes ago, and It seems to be helping, i m now down to 350. Thanks for the help, It is now about an hour since I asked the question, and about 50 minutes since I took the 15 units of insulin, and I m now down to a bloodsugar reading of 250. And I feel a little better also. That was pretty scary, thanks for everyone s help, the guy who told me to take 15 units might just get best answer if everything turns out ok.

Most people who have had a blood glucose level over 200mg are considered to be into uncontrolled diabetis. When blood glucose level gets more, generally, the cause is uncontrolled diabetes. The effects of having a consistent high blood glucose level over 500mg can be devastating on the body which can cause complications such as heart disease and stroke, blindness, hypertension, diabetic neuropathy, nerve damage, depression, complications with feet, kidney disease and limb amputation. Meet your doctor and get dose adjustm,ents. Keep control over what yu eat. It too plays a big role in raising your sugar levels.
