Avatar f tn Your medications generally do not cause diabetes. The hydrochlorothiazide in Dyazide can increase blood sugar levels in diabetics. Other risk factors for diabetes include advancing age, body weight and lack of exercise. If not already doing so, try some lifestyle modifications such as exercising regularly, eating few carbohydrates and sugars, and avoid smoking.
Avatar f tn I have been put in the hospital 3 times within these 3 months. I get stress tests, ultrasounds, X-rays and blood work. All tests says I am not having a heart attack, but with my blood pressure being high it is making my left side of my heart to struggle and causing my heart walls to thicken.. That is why I am having chest pains. My other systems are, numbing in my left arm, pain in my left jaw and some pain in my back.
Avatar m tn All those blood pressure meds could bring your pressure down, as they are prescribed to do just that - but make sure you ALWAYS take your blood pressure BEFPRE you take ANY of your BP meds. Sometimes they may pull your BP too low and (with the advice of your doctor) you may end up having to hold one or more until you BP comes up. You could easily need an adjustment. You can also get a low blood sugar on metformin, if you are not eating properly - and that can cause dizziness.
646318 tn?1261185094 when you become insulin resistant (insensitive to insulin), the pancreas works harder and produces more insulin....and sometimes it makes too much and that causes your blood sugar to go down too low.....like maybe 40.

Avatar n tn The problem is that just having a fasting-blood test, my cholesterol is low normal (all numbers) and my sugar is over 125. Prior to this my sugar readings have never been over 75 even after eating (being tested 6 times a day in the hospital following my stroke convinces me that these numbers are accurate ... my readings since forever have been extremely low).

Avatar m tn Also, if it helps, I experienced night sweats, heart burn, fatigue, gall bladder stones and attacks (had that puppy yanked before starting treatment!) low blood sugar episodes (caused some of my night sweats and headaches) (and more) before starting treatment and everything is back to normal now (16 months post treatment and still SVR!)...Hope this helps...
408795 tn?1324939275 * Portal hypertension and low albumin, cause fluid to leak out of blood vessels (and collect as ascites or edema) o Fluid leaking out of the blood vessels, can cause blood volume and blood pressure to drop + * If the blood pressure or blood volume falls (for any reason)..... the adrenal glands (ontop of each kidney) release aldosterone.
Avatar n tn As Per pubmed The effects of diltiazem hydrochloride, a vasodilator often used to treat hypertension, and beta-blockers (pindolol and propranolol hydrochloride) on lipid metabolism and carbohydrate metabolism were assessed by measuring serum levels of total cholesterol, high-density-lipoproteins (HDL)-cholesterol, triglycerides, and glucose in patients taking these drugs for three months.

Avatar n tn I get my angioedma at night so what is happening is say I eat sandwich with bread, then at dinner I eat a roll and something with sugar in it, then I have eatten too much and caused my low allergy to build up, and that is why my angioedma happens at night. Another thing to realize is only 20% of people will find out what causes hives. This is partly because docs just don't know much about it yet. Here is my low allergy's.
1139187 tn?1355710247 Meniere's is usuallly treated with a diuretic and sometimes a capillary dilator - I was on hydrochlorothiazide and isoxuprine (this was 11 years ago). But I was asked to do food elimination, because after steroids were used to bring down the initial attacks, the doctor figured maybe food was aggravating it. So one of my brothers had just been diagnosed with celiac disease, so I thought I would start there - and VOILA! that was the problem.
Avatar n tn 12th April 1999 The pancreas has two important roles - one is to produce digestive enzymes that are passed into the digestive tract through a duct, and the other is to release hormones into the blood to control sugar levels. So the pancreas is both an exocrine and an endocrine gland. The pancreatic enzymes can become a danger to the pancreas itself if they become activated within the pancreatic tissues, and this is what happens in pancreatitis.
Avatar m tn It increases your urine output. Yes, it can mess with your blood sugar, but if you're not overweight, and you get exercise every day (plus avoid processed foods, sweets, fast food, etc.) you should be okay. ACE inhibitors are another class of meds for high blood pressure. I'd ask your prescribing physician for a discussion of all the HPB meds, beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, etc. and the pros and cons for each of them.
Avatar n tn Her blood pressure checks out ok, but is the medicine for the blood pressure causing this pain. Some days she is ok and other days the pain comes in the morning and lasts all day. Of all the medecines she takes which is most likely the culprit. Is there any alternatives.
Avatar m tn You should check out with your physician to evaluate other causes of raised blood pressure. Also blood test for high cholesterol levels and blood sugar levels should be done. The answer is based on information provided. Exact advice is not possible without a proper examination and investigations. You are requested to consult your Doctor. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar m tn I recently saw another doctor to check my blood pressure which has been elevated.She prescribed hydrochlorothiazide..and guess what...a Lipitor statin generic. Though afraid to take the statin, I took it for the past 2 weeks and guess what?..I've noticed the numbness in my feet/legs getting worse. I am thinking of dropping it again. I have read some doctors call statins poison..on the internet. Is what they say believable? When I ask my doctor about things like this..I get no response.
Avatar m tn The increased urination is from the hydrochlorothiazide part of the pill. hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic, and sometimes is used by itself to control blood pressure. In my case, I'd probably start with Cozaar first, which is Hyzaar minus the diuretic, and then add the diuretic if not happy with the results. My home BP monitor is on the fritz so don't know what's happening these days but with the squats and dead lifts I'm doing in the gym, maybe time to get a new one.
Avatar m tn aspirin, lipitor, allegra, losartin, atenolol, plavix, protonix, hydrochlorothiazide and lantus and humulog for his diabetes. He was on reglan for a short time. He was diagnosed after many episodes with esophogitis and I cant recall the last one having to do with his stomach not emptying properly. He has been to a gastroenterologist and recently saw an new endocrinologist. He recently had a colonoscopy, his DR. was very pleased with the condition of his colon. He is 64yrs old and a tennis pro..

Avatar f tn I guess I was wondering if his thyroid issues have anything to do with this and should we go ahead and have him see an endocrinologist since his sugar and calcium are high and he is hypothyroid which is currently under control. Sorry for the long post and thank you for your time!
478554 tn?1208038007 This reduces the volume of the blood, decreasing blood return to the heart and thus cardiac output and, by other mechanisms, is believed to lower peripheral vascular resistance. Hydrochlorothiazide is sold both as a generic drug and under a large number of brand names, including Apo-Hydro, Aquazide H, Dichlotride, Hydrodiuril, HydroSaluric, Microzide, Esidrex, and Oretic. http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar m tn A NURSE (not a doctor) told me to take in less fluids in the course of a day to prevent future fluid build-up. I have complained on a couple of occasions that I feel the hydrochlorothiazide (for HBP and water retention) is not doing the job. I am convinced that I take in more liquid than I excrete. BTW: I have come to the conclusion that meds ending in -lol (in your case Carvedilol; in my case Metoprolol; in my husband's case Atenolol) raise blood sugar numbers.
Avatar n tn We comprimised and she gave my 2 Rxs for Atenolol 100mg and Hydrochlorothiazide 25mg. I am to start taking 1/2 tablet of each, once daily in the morning. I am free to adjust my dosages gradually until I find a combination that works well for me, as long as I promise to keep monitoring my BP so that it does not go over 140/90 and I return in a month for BP and med check. So...
Avatar n tn Are there any drugs on the market that target systolic blood pressure and do not effect diastolic pressures? Can it possibly be a different generic from the pharmacy, if so what of the above drugs would most likely effect the higher systolic pressure?

Avatar n tn I went back after reading your blog question and I have log book of my Bp and blood pressure. And fromthe time of starting this drug my A!C has gone from 6.4 to 7.0 quite a jump huh. I am really ticked. My dr just said he wants to start me on Byetta and since I have lost 23lbs it hasn't helped my BS so it would make me loose weight. errr, this is a mess and its I hope something I can change. Its a vicious circle. My Dr. blamed me for it going up, and its the medicine he put me on!
Avatar f tn In particular, magnesium affected blood sugar levels and insulin resistance. Another recent study showed that taking 600 mg of magnesium per day significantly improved blood sugar metabolism as well as triglycerides and cholesterol.
