please help, can a reading of 5.6 blood sugar jump drastically in 1 year? I also suffer from health anxiety which makes things harder. I will be going for tests later this week.

    Yes, a normal reading can jump SUDDENLY to OMG levels. Mine did. The hospital and other experts I talked to said they see a couple of cases per year like that. But I've also talked to several people on support groups who had similar stories. It's unusual but not unknown.

    And it doesn't have to mean much. It took a month or three but mine went right back down again, with the good old diet, exercise, and metformin. But not before it had scared the jeepers out of me.

    There are several things that can affect your blood sugar levels.

    If you are not well with a cold or something it can raise the level.

    What was the result of the tests?

    Take care and keep in touch
