4 doctors agree

In brief: Probably not

Tenormin (atenolol) is a blood pressure medication available generically that has been around for a very long time.
It has a lot of possible side effects but to my knowledge diabetes is not one of them.

In brief: No

Beta blockers such as Tenormin (atenolol) do not directly cause diabetes.
