Any infection or stress on the body can result in higher blood sugars.  Things should improve once you recover.
In the meantime, drink plenty of water and fluids, avoid all added sugars, eat lower carb foods.
If your blood sugar is very high (180+ and not coming down with your usual management) it would be worth contacting your doctor for assistance / further inputs.
