Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Ankle turning purple and swollen needs evaluation as that could point towards different causes like hematological, rheumatological causes. it needs work up. Blood glucose levels are least correlated .

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
