Can bacterial infection cause elevated sugar levels?

Hi Dr. I am diabetic since one year and I have been doing very well in controlling my diabeties through a lot of sport and a ballanced diet . I check my blood sugar daily and it was fine and AC1 was between 6.0-6.3. A few weeks ago I had stomach problems and yesterday the doctor told me that I have bacteria in the stomach, DPM 650. My blood sugar is going crazy in the last 3 weeks reaching 300mg/dl a figure that I have never experienced since I was diagnosed with diabeties. My question is; can the bacteria infection cause such spikes in my blood sugar? Thank you

Hi, Osamanab,
Thanks for query.
Any infection in the body may disturb diabetes and increases blood sugar level and many a time injection insulin is to be started for controlling blood sugar.
So consult your doctor and start medicine for controlling blood sugar.
Ok and bye.
