In brief: Yes

Yes, a rise in adrenaline associated with anxiety will cause your blood glucose to rise.
In a diabetic, adrenaline can cause a sharp rise, like 100 or so points or more, but in a non-diabetic 10 or 15 points is possible. Be mindful that uncontrolled glucose levels may also lead indirectly to rise in anxiety sensations as well, see your doctor, to assure adequate control.
