Hi,

are you on insulin?  You need to have very low carb diet and you need to be taking insulin properly.

If you are in US I understand you can buy the old insulins (Humulin N and R over the counter in wallmart quite cheaply).  This will be better than none. You can also get cheaper meter and strips the same way.  I assume you do know how to use insulin properly.

You need to check how you can get assistance.  Do you have a Dr?  Can you get access to any assistance.  Sounds like you might be in trouble with really high blood sugars.  Juice can make your sugars very high.
