Have antibiotics raised your blood sugar?

Have antibiotics raised your blood sugar?

I am taking Augmentin for a UTI infection. I’m taking 2 500 mg daily and I am. On my 4th day of a 5 day regimen. My blood sugar is usually around 120-130 but it has been high in the 160 to 200 late. Have felt sort of rugged. Can the Augmentin cause my blood sugar level to go high?
