Hello,

Usually there is no relation between streptococcal throat infection and raised blood sugar levels. Please get it done fasting blood sugar, post prandial blood sugar levels and hbA1c and review with reports.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
