Does Lasix Affect Blood Sugar
I will leave the fasting glucose numbers to the people on this board that have had better success than I, but I wanted to follow up on the effects of diuretics on blood glucose levels, which I have personal experience with.
While I was in the hospital in December 2010, my dose of lasix (furosemide) was discontinued as it was compromising my kidneys. For a few weeks after I left the hospital, I kept having low blood sugar readings down to the 40's. My endo and I worked to lower my insulin doses until the numbers stabilized. A few months later, I had to restart the furosemide due to increased symptoms with my heart. Once I started taking it again, my blood sugar levels increased, and my insulin had to be increased. Since then, anytime my furosemide dose has been changed, my insulin dose has to be adjusted as well or my blood sugar levels are affected. My endo mentioned that it can be an issue for some diabetics.
Although the effects of diuetics on blood glucose are individual, and may not be a problem for you, I wanted to let you know that it can be a possibility, and is something you will need to discuss with your endo.
