In brief: No

Very high blood sugars cause an osmotic diuresis which will cause low blood pressure (even shock) but 215 isn't high enough unless it's been there for a very long time and you're not drinking fluids normally.

In brief: No

At your age 215 is only mildly above the renal threshold where you would begin to dump glucose (and water) into the urine.
There would not be enough fluid loss to lead to low bp.
