Usually no: Metformin is an excellent diabetes medication because it lowers your blood sugar by making you more sensitive to your own insulin, but it will not allow your glucose to go low. Other diabetes medications (glyburide or other sulfonylureas; insulin) can give you hypoglycemia. If your sugars are "low", maybe you don't need the metformin. Has something changed from when you were started (eg wt loss)? ...Read more

Yes: They are working on it- the artificial pancreas. The ultimate goal would be an integrated system where the continuous glucose monitor (already available) will be communicating with the Insulin pumps (already available), which can use the continuouse glucose data will be used by the pump to make decisions about Insulin rate. However, it is not yet available commercially in the near future. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes but take extra..: A multivitamin can be very helpful for diabetes (& may help BP too) but most one-a-days are not potent enough. The one-a-day brand has a small amount of synthetic vit e; larger amounts of natural e is better; the minerals like zinc are in forms that are poorly absorbed, you need more chromium, b6, magnesium than it provides. I suggest taking a higher-quality vitamin that will help more-see comment:. ...Read more

If you're diabetic (type 2) on insulin and have a hypo how much glucose or dextrose is required in order to increase blood sugar levels by 1 mmol?
Hypoglycemia: There is no precise answer. It depends on how much Insulin you took, what you ate, how fast the glucose falls, etc. If you have a severe reaction, you need to eat, but sometimes people with diabetes take in too much glucose, causing wide swings in blood glucose when in fact only a little glucose is needed. Glucose tablets give you a measured amount of sugar which you can regulate. ...Read more

Glucose and BP meds: No anti-hypertensive agent raises one's glucose. You should have a 24 hour urine collection to see if you significant proteinuria (protein in your urine). If so you have more than, you should be on ace-inhibitors and/or angiotensin receptor blockers which both reduce one's blood pressure and proteinuria. If you have more than 100mg of proteinuria/24 hours you should be on ace-i and/o arbs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not hypertension...: but possibility transient elevation in blood pressure which is not same thing as hypertension. Acute hyperglycemia (very rapid rise in blood glucose) in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic patients can cause significant hemodynamic changes including elevated systolic and diastolic blood pressure by 10 mm. This would be unlikely in a non-diabetic patient. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Will glucosimine or instaflex affect blood sugar results in someone with diabetes controlled by diet not med taken?
If a person is taking diuretics and laxatives during a seven day fast will it increase insulin levels in diabetics?
High blood sugar: Prolonged fasting will down regulate Insulin receptors and also Insulin production. Once one goes back to eating, blood sugars may shoot up because it will be even more difficult to get insulin/sugar into cells when there are fewer Insulin receptors. "starvation diabetes" is a well known consequence to prolonged caloric restriction. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
