Gotta love these tricky questions. It turns out that higher glucose levels increase beta cell secretion, storage of triglycerides and because the body has too much sugar, then it becomes stored as glycogen. The only thing high blood glucose does not do, is increase epinephrine secretion. That is more for fight or flight, but if there is a lot of epinephrine secretion, it will make the body break down glycogen/glycogon into sugar, so the body has enough energy to fight or flight....

Makes sense, because carbohydrates gets stored as fat eventually, Thanks for the clarify.
