Elemental diet and blood sugar

Does anyone else on elemental 028 have their blood sugar checked or would they only do this if they thought I had/or was at risk of diabetes?

I've been on this diet twice before and no-one tested my blood sugars or even suggested it. But I'm on it again and suddenly the nurses are checking.

Any thoughts?

DS has been on formula for months
This is his second time
They occasionally check his glucose level but all his other nutritional levels as well

Good luck
