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/.

Treatment: You need to discuss with your doctor. You may need to have your medication adjusted. High blood sugars are exacerbated by anything with calories if not properly treated. Anything without calories won't affect your blood sugar directly. However, your liver will continue to manufacture an abnormal amount of glucose without proper treatment.
