Drinking water and some type of exercise will help burn some of it, but only more insulin will affect it immediately.

Extra water, exercise, and insulin plan. I don't know the levels, but if really high or not reacting, may need medical support.

When my sugars high I immediately start drinking water: helps dilute sugar slowly,effectively and naturally and it should test within your range within about an hour or so:NOTE:TRY 1 eight oz glass at a time first to avoid shock from occurring possibly...I just pretend it's unsweetened tea and enjoy the taste of the water by sipping it, also very relaxing!
