Brief Answer:
diet and medications

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
This is high blood sugar but still not critical. You need to follow diabetic diet,regulate body mass index, exercise and repeat test in a week. If there is still such blood sugar value then you need oral medications. If there is no improvement in 2 months then you need insuline. Wish you good health.Regards

no need for medicines so urgently.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

There is no need for medicines so urgently. Avoid high sugar food,drink plenty of fluids and check your blood sugar in the morning. It should be lower and you can wait till monday. If it is 300 or above then you should see doctor earlier
