Does nervousness/stress cause elevated glucose?

If a person is actively nervous at the time of a blood draw, would this potentially cause an elevation in glucose? I'm thinking that it could, given that a fight-or-flight response would kick in. Thanks for any input.


I should also note that I am not diabetic. My glucose while nervous was 102. My glucose tested at home while not nervous is in the 90-95 range. I'm just wondering if the 102 reading could be a false higher reading due to nervousness, so to speak, and if it does or does not really make me "pre-diabetic".
