Re: I proved to endo that my high cholesterol was frm meds
You can do some online research on bp meds yourself. Some diuretics can increase blood sugar, which is why I don't want to be put on them.
according to this site, which is my favorite one to check out drugs [url]http://www.rxlist.com/cgi/generic/hctz_wcp.htm[/url]
thiazide diuretics, which this is can cause:
In diabetic patients dosage adjustments of insulin or oral hypoglycemic agents may be required. Hyperglycemia may occur with thiazide diuretics. Thus latent diabetes mellitus may become manifest during thiazide therapy.
Increases in cholesterol and triglyceride levels may be associated with thiazide diuretic therapy.
among other things.
If your doctors won't admit hctz has these potential side effects, its time to find new doctors. These side effects are well documented. And you clearly have proof for your particular case.
