Knowing that meters accuracy, it probably means something to the effect of you're bs is 97.

All kidding aside, verify the reading, and if it's right, it means like over 600 so correct if you have fast acting insulin, otherwise get ye to the ER.

When it reads HI it is usually indicative of a meter error.

If not, then you are close to death. See a physican.

But I would test with another meter immediately following the HI.

If your meter reads "HI", then you should wash your hands and check it again. If it still reads high, that means your glucose is over 600 (over 33 mmol) and you need to call your doctor and go to the emergency room. If you are not already in DKA, then you are certainly well on your way.
