Yes, stress can raise your levels. When you are stressed, it raises your hormone level and this can cause your blood sugar to rise. Your hormones are basically releasing a burst of energy in the form of glucose which is sugar.

Stress is known to spike blood sugar, also called glucose. It's a very common occurrence and Stress can increase levels of hormones in the body, particularly cortisol, which can make blood sugar rise. It is the link Between Stress and Blood Sugar.

Emotional stress and Physiological stress cause the body to secrete stress hormones into the blood stream. For those who have diabetes, however, stress can cause a prolonged increase in blood glucose level.
