Diabetes: If your blood sugars are running higher than usual, look for sources of infection, such as bladder/kidney or even on bottom of your feet (especially if they're numb & tingly). Blood sugars that are higher than usual are often a sign of infection that needs to be isolated & treated as quickly as possible.
