Kidney stone with high glucose

I’m a 41 y/o male. Yesterday I was rushed to the ER with severe back pain. I was diagnosed with a 2mm kidney stone. They did lab work and a urinalysis. My glucose came back at 126. I’m not diabetic and I actually test my blood sugar at home and am usually in the 86-93 range fasting. My urine was negative for glucose. I’m 5’7 195. Clinically I’m overweight but I am a weightlifter so I do have a lot of muscle. Can a kidney stone raise glucose levels. I checked again this morning and it was 112 which it’s never been that high. The ER doctors didn’t mention anything about the glucose while I was in the ER
