My doctor diagnosed me as haveing diabetes. One month my fasting blood sugar was 70, the next it was 280. All my doctor could talk about was how this could be controlled by diet and exercise. When I asked how my sugar levels could jump 200 points in a month, he didn't have a good answer. I found a site from Stanford that said near the bottom that sometimes certain drugs could cause this like "Hydrochlorothiazide". That name looked familure, and sure enough, that was a new drug my doctor had prescribed for my blood presure, right before my sugar jumped. I asked my doctor if it could be the cause, and he said he had never heard of that side effect, but that if I wanted to I could stop takeing it for a month and have my blood sugar retested. I did and my blood sugar levels droped down to 80.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
