When you say Sugar levels, I assume you mean Serum Glucose? (HbA1c)

After losing over 100lbs, I can tell you that I still do these tests almost daily!

the understanding of how much sugar we have in our blood is important.
Obesity and Diabetes are not only co-morbidities to Covid, they are the basis of about 60% of ALL medical costs. Most blindness comes from T2D (Type 2 Diabetes). So do most foot/leg amputations.

I believe your blood can hold a few teaspoons of sugar to fuel your entire body.
And drinking a can of soda provides like 11 teaspoons all at once. Creating an insidious loop of storing energy, to give you energy. Add the Salt+Sugar+Acid, which clears your palette and makes it "hyper-palatable" (meaning you don't really get tired of drinking it). Finally, sugar and caffeine are both addictive.

So, the "sugar" tests matter. But, IMO, the average doctor doesn't understand how much, and where the fixes get applied (because they study it with a focus on Prescribing Drugs).

T2D is "Diet Induced Diabetes". And can be resolved by fixing the diet! (Or by taking drugs that make you fatter and sicker over time). ONLY 1 of those is good for the patient, the other is good for the food industry, the doctor, the pharmacy, and the drug company.

You decide where the moral hazard lies.
