Patient : I have had blood work done several times over this past year with no issues with my sugar. Recently we applied for life insurance and had to have bloodwork done. Two weeks before the tests I decided to cut out all sugar and to eat healthier and to eat less. When we received the lab results I was denied insurance due to having an extremely high sugar level. Could I have caused a reaction within my body by altering my eating habits so drastically and so suddenly?
