From Orlando, Florida, USA:

My sister had a kidney infection and her sugar level was high even though she does not have diabetes. A week after she recovered, her sugar was normal. Is it possible for someone without diabetes to have a high sugar from an infection? Is she developing diabetes?


It is possible, but quite unusual to have a high blood sugar level and not have diabetes. If her blood sugars are indeed normal now, she needs to be closely monitored for diabetes in the future.
