Re: HCTZ and higher glucose levels
Most definitely! I was on hctz for over 4 yrs and w/o my knowledge my glucose a1c reading steadily climbed from 5. something to 10.9. When i discovered an article in my Diabetes Interviewer, stating diabetics(me) should not take hctz due to higher glucose and cholesterol readings, i stopped the pill.
However, i've since been given lasix. Some on this board says lasix can increase the cholesterol. Since stopping hctz my glucose a1c has dropped to 7.5 and hopefully it will go back to 5.0.
