Would early HIV infection cause changes in BLOOD SUGAR?

Would early HIV infection (within the first 3 months), cause elevated levels of blood sugar? I heard that HIV causes metabolic abnormalities, or is the the DRUGS USED TO TREAT HIV that causes the high blood sugar?  Thank you very much!

In other words, does being infected with HIV alone cause changes in blood sugar?  Or is it the drugs used to treat it?  Thank you.
