Brief Answer:
Emergency

Detailed Answer:
I strongly advise you to go to the ER (Emergency Room) immediately and preferably have someone escort you there. Ideally call your emergency helpline number.

Running glucoses persistently in this range can result in a life threatening complication of diabetes called hyperglycaemic crisis.

It is very likely you will be given Insulin intensively with close monitoring of your vital signs.
