    Your blood sugar level can rise if you are feeling unwell or stressed or both, but notably - it will increase with an infection (and even more so, often, if on antibiotics). Lisinopril can certainly raise it too. So too Amitriptylene. I have to say, though, it seems that three sheep passing by a pig with a red woolly hat on a Tuesday can also raise your blood sugar. You will know, of course, that the reason the pig has a red hat on is...his blue one is in the wash. Sorry. drink plenty of fluids (water or very diluted no sugar juice..Robinsons is good if very diluted) and keep your carbohydrate intake low (avoid bread, spuds, cereal, pasta etc). Good luck.
