From Arvada, Colorado, USA:

I have been told that along with stress, pain can cause your body to increase adrenalin which then causes your glucose levels to rise and that illness is also a factor. Is this an accurate assessment?


All true -- illness, stress, excitement can all trigger an adrenalin response which raises blood glucose levels.
