Insomnia could it be fluctuations in blood sugar?

Hi I'm wondering if my insomnia is to do with blood sugar fluctuations?
I've been waking up about 2am almost every other night, at its worst, and I lie there restless and my brain whirring away and I can't get back to sleep for a few hours.
I've noticed I get a bit "high" after anything too sweet and I seem to get a "drop" in energy afterwards. I also seem prone to fungal and yeast overgrowth type things like thrush and have athletes foot almost permanently despite using antiifungall creams

Could I be pre diabetic?
