Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

In my opinion, you can should take a dose of regular insulin right away. You will need a prescription for it.
Also get checked for ketones.
You will also need intravenous fluids.
I think you can visit an emergency room if its late or visit your family physician rightaway if he is available.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
