Hypoglycemia turned into Diabetes???

I have hypoglycemia and my blood sugar usually run less than 100 after eating, but yesterday I spiked to 176. Should I be worried this is turning into diabetes? I have also been waking up 6-8 times through the night to pee!
Thank you for your input...

Hi there!

As single elevated value may not necessarily indicate diabetes since this may occur due to stress, temporary hormonal/ endocrine issues etc aside testing errors. It might be worthwhile taking a few more readings, before and after food on different days and taking a few random readings. If most of the readings remain high, you might consider seeing a primary care physician or an endocrinologist for confirmatory testing and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
