Carvedilol and diabetes

Common Questions and Answers about Carvedilol and diabetes


Avatar m tn I quit taking carvedilol and my statin as I thought I had my heart problems knocked, and soon afterwards, even though my cholesterol, diabetes and weight was normal, I had to have six more stents, a pacemaker, and eventually bypass surgery. Today at age 72 I'm back taking the drugs, but I also have Congestive Heart Failure, and believe me, taking carvedilol and Plavix was much easier. I have to sleep in a chair because my lungs fill with water. I made a huge mistake by stopping the drugs.
Avatar f tn I'm taking carvedilol, lisinopril, digoxin, medication for my cholesterol and diabetes 2 and also aspirin and cod liver oil . I would like to continue with my exercise program and don't know if it's allowed. It's not hard, just walking.
Avatar n tn In the Echocardiogram report show a mild to moderate tricuspid valvular regurgitation and the cardiologist wanted to prescribe me Coumadin and Carvedilol capsule and wanted me to start taking them while in the hospital. I told him I'm not psychologically, emotionally and physically ready for it and I need a few days to think about it. Since all my blood tests, ECG results are all normal except the TVR.

Avatar m tn They got the fluid out of me in the hospital over 8 days and put me on Wafarin, Carvedilol, Enalapril, and 80mg of Furosemide once a day. A year later my EF was 35%. The next year 50%, and this year 55%. I am still on the same medication as I was when I first left the hopspital. One issue that I have is I sweat when I work and get dehydrated. I told my cardiologist, but he didn't seem so concerned.
Avatar m tn Light headedness could be due to postural hypotension, wherein upon standing blood pooling occurs in the legs and the brain is deprived of adequate blood supply and oxygenation. This is more common in the elderly and in people with diabetes mellitus. So, don't worry and discuss these options with your doctor. Regards.

Avatar n tn I'm 39, diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy and diabetes 8/97. I've been on Vasotec, Lasix, and Digoxin since then, and started Coreg in October. I've been on 25 mg Coreg twice a day since early December. My EF has gone from 22% 8/97 to 42% 12/97. The diabetes control first needed insulin, then just Amaryl, and now just diet/exercise. I had diabetic neuropathy pains in the feet through the fall and winter; this occurs only every 4-5 nights today.

Avatar f tn I was continuing with atenolol 25 mg. I underwent an echo in 2008 and it was normal. I also underwent lipid profile and LDL and triglycerides were high. Since my BP was not controlled with atenolol, cardiologist suggested me to take carvedilol 6.25 mg. After 2 years, I underwent master health checkup. I underwent echo, treadmill test, chest x-ray, blood and urine tests. Again, it revealed that BP was high and LDL and triglycerides were high.

Avatar m tn My dad has type ll diabetes, he is 60 yrs old and in the past year his health has gone completly down hill. He can hardly walk, he shakes really bad, his arms and legs jerk. He lost his sight in his left eye and has trouble seeing out of his right eye. He falls alot, he is very weak, and has lost alot of weight, he has no muscle tone. His doctor has him on so many different meds, Im not sure if his meds are causing this.
Avatar m tn My knees have started to hurt again (the pain will switch from one to the other), I went to the doctor and he said my heart was irregular (that it was beating too fast and he prescribed Carvedilol), I was dizzy for like 3 weeks (kept almost fainting and I still feel like fainting when I walk around a lot), I have a difficult time concentrating and zone out a lot, it’s hard to pay attention and I don’t feel as alert as I normally would.
Avatar n tn Live entirely on dietary restrictions ,medications for hypertension,diabetes(lasix,aspirin,clopidgrel,carvedilol,stator,Glimipride and nitroglycerine).No breathlessness felt during walking sessions. Except for occasional spells of fatigue and listlessness, everything seems okay. Further investigations or interventional procedures not suggested by the consultant cardiologist.
Avatar f tn This means testing for elevated cholesterol and other fats in the blood, diabetes and hypertension (high blood pressure), encouraging stopping smoking and weight optimisation. In your case, it will depend what is the nature of pain. 1. Do you have chest discomfort rather than actual pain, the discomfort is usually present as a pressure, heaviness, tightness, squeezing, burning, or choking sensation. 2. Do you have any radiation of pain?
Avatar f tn At the same time I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes. I am on Amaryl and metformin for the diabetes. I am also on Carvedilol (coreg) and lisinopril for the heart. I am also on simavastin (zocor) even though my total cholesterol at time of heart attach was 164. I have done some investigating as to why my blood sugar readings seem to be so high and find that Carvedilol (coreg) and lisinopril can cause increases in blood glucose.
535089 tn?1400677119 Substances Causing False Positives According to a report by the Los Angeles Times New Service, a study of 161 prescription and over the counter medications showed that 65 of them produced false positive results in the most widely administered urine test.
Avatar f tn Hi, How are you and your friend? Diabetes, hypertension and cholesterolemia are risk factors for heart failure. To help your friend, you should encourage him to control his blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol by continuing his medications and living a healthy lifestyle. A low salt, low fat diet, regular exercise and weight reduction program are recommended. As mentioned by the other member's comments, diuretics and putting his feet up may help reduce his lower extremity swelling.
Avatar m tn I am currently taking metformin for T2 diabetes, furosemide, lisinopril and an 81mg aspirin. I will be seeing a new doctor in mid october. My biggest concerns at the moment are with the safety of the meds I am taking and with the leg stenosis. I would rather not take either an ACE inhibitor or and ARB if there are suitable alternatives; my doctor dropped carvedilol shortly after I was diagnosed with CHF. I am trying to find reliable information on aldosterone blockers and beta blockers?
Avatar n tn They've now added Carvedilol 3.125 2x/day and Lisinopril 2.5mg. Ejection is 55%, Cholesterol-119, LDL-64, HDL-29, and Triglycerides-131. BP is usually 120-130 over 80 pulse 60. My husband is 60 years old, no other health problems,does chew some snuff, 5 ft. 10in 209 lbs. No diabetes. The dr. seemed very discouraged and couldn't understand all this blockage after 5 years, what do you think is wrong and do you agree he shouldn't have bypass?
705966 tn?1239412351 The main reason is that they tend to increase Blood Glucose, and might provoke diabetes. Nebivolol does not increase BG, btw. But carvedilol does. Nebivolol though is quite expensive, and might not be on a formulary. Atenolol is inexpensive. There is also a new drug called ivabradine that gives pure control of heart rate without being a beta blocker. You also might think about changing the timing of your medication.
Avatar n tn It can give your stomach a full sensation and decrease the urge to nibble. Have you been tested for Diabetes? Also, may you just have a very high metabolism, especially if you are not overweight. Stress may also cause you to feel hungry all the time. Not sure about your situation, but if you are overall healthy it could just be your body needs more nutrition. Do you take vitamins or any supplements?
