Hi,
That level of glucose is very high and should be addressed by your doctor or an urgent care center as soon as possible.  Stress can worsen glucose levels, as can infections or medications,and ofcourse food.  The natural course of diabetes is also one that needs more medication over time, so this may be part of your situation.

In any event I urge you to speak with your doctor or seek urgent care as soon as possible to have your diabetes medications changed and some investigation into why your levels are suddenly so high. Seek assistance before raising the chance of your becoming very ill.

Take care.
