sucralfate/carafate and blood sugar levels
I am a pump using diabetic who has been prescribed sucralfate for an ulcer situation, 4 doses a day. I am of the opinion that this drug is causing my blood sugars to rise through the roof. yesterday at 1145pm i had a 131 BG, At this point i took one of my doses of carafate and with absolutely no carb intake or reason, my blood sugars rose to levels 1 &1/2 hours later to about 236.
thats 131 to 236 in a little under two hours with the only ingest being water and a dose of sucralfate. does anyone have any similar stories they might be able to relate?
