It may be a dumb question, but I've been doing fairly good on my diet, but tonight I cheated and my sugar is 154, It's too late to walk, I'd like to go to bed, I'm just curious is there a number that is absolutely too high? I'm not on insulin so I just can't take a shot to lower it. Is 154 a panic number?
When I was diagnosed I was at 550, so what is considered High

The current guidelines suggest that two hours after a meal the blood sugar level should not be more than 200mg/dl. Having said that your level of 154mg/dl may have been normal, if more than 2 hours had passed after your meal.
As you are not on insulin, please let us know what medication you are on.
Have a nice day.
