Like blood sugar? Yes that's quite dangerous emergency-room type levels. My mom is diabetic and the only times it ever got that high for her she didn't remember what she was doing at the time.

I have been in the high 500's. I became very disoriented and lathargic. It was difficult for my family to wake me up. Dont mess around with it, it can be very dangerous. Avoid driving when you are this high. I was taken to the er and was given a shot immeditely. I am now having to take 30 units of insulin two times a day. Giving myself a shot twice a day has become a normal part of my life, and I feel so much better. Check with your doctor or a diabetic educator. Keep in mind, everyone is different. We do not all have the same kinds of reactions. Some can tolerate higher glucose readings better than others. But again, let me emphasize that anything over 400 can be dangerous, especially for prolonged periods of time.

I've been having those high numbers for quite a while now.
Let me tell you this...
I now have 20/200 eye vision, permanent numb damage in my legs and minor kidney damage and something wrong with my appendix (spelling?). often feel real sick...

This all happend over about 1-2 years with a countless amout of high numbers... so yea.

I dont think all this can happen to a person that quickly... usually you'll feel real sick and have to go to the hospital (ER)

yea... thats my story... :)

DKA, as you know; plus hyperosmolarity affecting mostly the CNS with, eg. seizures, etc.

If you are a Type 1, this is going to happen once in a while. The important thing with high blood glucose is to bring it down as soon as possible. That's why it's recommended that we test ourselves a minimum of 4x/day. High 400's are not high enough to send you to the hospital, but you would probably be running ketones, so you might have to give yourself another unit or 2 or insulin to bring yourself back down.

Blood sugar over 400 is dangerous and makes you feel like dirt.
If not treated, yes, it can cause DKA.
Grab that insulin bottle now and use it!

You are suffering from hyperglycemia.
Hyperglycemia, or high blood glucose (sugar), is a serious health problem for those with diabetes. Hyperglycemia develops when there is too much sugar in the blood. In people with diabetes, there are two specific types of hyperglycemia that occur:

Fasting hyperglycemia is defined as a blood sugar greater than 90-130 mg/dL (milligrams per deciliter) after fasting for at least 8 hours.
Postprandial or after-meal hyperglycemia is defined as a blood sugar usually greater than 180 mg/dL. In people without diabetes postprandial or post-meal sugars rarely go over 140 mg/dL but occasionally, after a large meal, a 1-2 hour post-meal glucose level can reach 180 mg/dL. Consistently elevated high post-meal glucose levels can be an indicator that a person is at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes
When a person with diabetes has hyperglycemia frequently or for long periods of time as indicated by a high HbA1c blood test, damage to nerves, blood vessels and other body organs can occur. Hyperglycemia can also lead to more serious conditions, including ketoacidosis -- mostly in people with type 1 diabetes -- and hyperglycemic hyperosmolar nonketotic syndrome in people with type 2 diabetes or in people at risk for type 2 diabetes.
