Hi XXXXXXX ,
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
You should have got Random blood sugar during treament while you felt weak rather than stop all decision. It is at times very risky step but worked well for you luckily.
Your raised sugar level was related probably to stress of infection and resolved over time.
Yes you can keep a check on blood sugar by diet and exercise, intact this is the first thing to be implemented in newly detected hyperglycemia.
But you can not rely blindly on this intervention and must keep a tight watch on the sugar levels.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!
