Brief Answer:
It may not be urgent

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your query.
I think I can help you.
Check urine ketones and ABG tests.
If these are normal, it is not an urgent problem.
Continue the medications and modify your diet.
And take a appointment with your regular diabetician.
What is the frequency of the medications?
Best of luck, Dr Mittal
