How do you keep your blood sugar high without eating?

Not enough insulin: We all store glucose (sugar) in our liver. Normally, when we have eaten, we put out Insulin that tells the liver that it does not need to release the glucose that has been stored. However, a patient with diabetes who is deficient in Insulin will not have adequate Insulin to do this, so the liver will continue to put out glucose even though the blood sugar is high/.

Many possible: Reasons. Since i don't know what you mean by high, i'm going to assume that you're eating too much food or not taking an appropriate dose of medication. This needs to be discussed w/your doctor.

It depends: There are varying degrees of high blood sugar. When it is moderately high, you may feel fine other than some weakness etc and more frequent urination. If it is very high it can lead to a condition called diabetic ketoacidosis where can cause dehydration, kidney failure and death if not treated in a timely manner.

It shouldn'tNormally: If you have diabetes or pre- diabetes, as you eat, Insulin levels may acutely increase before your blood sugar has had a chance to go up. Though it usually doesn't happen this way. You might also want to check to see if you're starting off your meals low to begin with. If you take Insulin too soon before a meal this may also happen.
