Medications that make you diabetic or make diabetes worse be aware have you ever been taking medications for a while and then all of a sudden your blood glucose levels were higher than normal well this could be because some medicines can cause this hi i’m dr ahmet terrigan i’m an endocrinologist and a diabetes specialist today we are talking about meds that can

Give you diabetes sometimes diabetes might go away on its own but in some cases it doesn’t which means that if we don’t stop giving these type of pills or injections soon enough permanent diabetes may result so today i will explain how each medication type can cause diabetes now if you must continue taking the medication that caused your diabetes it may make your

Control in your diabetes more difficult than normal so if you’re able to discontinue the medication your blood glucose levels may become a lot easier to manage now of course following a healthy diet and meeting the recommended exercise guidelines will help you manage your blood levels much better if worse comes worse right and we have to also reduce the risk of

Diabetes and high blood sugar levels by taking the medication in lesser dosages if possible or for a shorter length of time you may be prescribed a lower dose of medication in an effort to prevent issues like diabetes from arising hopefully but if not talk to your doctor if you have a higher chance of acquiring type 2 diabetes you may want to talk to your doctor

About that have that medication or those which may actually increase your risk of developing this diabetes like steroids for example so we’re going to talk about that first corticosteroids are really important class of drugs that are used to treat a variety of illnesses because of inflammation like rheumatoid arthritis it could be lupus there’s many other diseases

Now steroids can be in the form of creams inhalers pills infusions or injections so it is possible that corticosteroids will actually cause an increase in blood glucose levels even without diabetes which will then return to normal after the steroid therapy is completed however particularly if corticosteroids are used for a prolonged amount of time steroid treatment

Can sometimes result in the development of type 2 diabetes that is irreversible in some cases so if you are already a diabetic it is very possible that you will need to take insulin while taking steroid medication because high dose steroids such as the one to treat copd or knee injections will skyrocket your blood sugar now following the completion of your steroid

Course of treatment you may be able to switch to a less potent diabetic prescription or even discontinue your blood glucose lowering medication completely now we’re going to talk about the beta blockers next such as atenolol carvedilol metropolis and so forth in order to lower blood pressure and heart rate beta blockers work by inhibiting the release of adrenaline

And neuroadrenaline from the body now patients with an angina heart disease or high blood pressure they may be prescribed beta blockers to help them manage their symptoms now beta blockers on the other hand can impair the insulin sensitivity they can increase the likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes especially in the long term the next is thiazide diuretics

Such as hydrochlorothiazide these are medicines that help the body flush the water out of the body they’re called diuretics diuretics etc some people call them water tablets they can be used to lower the blood pressure or remove the extra water from the body they can also be used to help lose weight and so forth but the side effects of taking thyazi diuretics is

A lot and one of them is high blood sugar levels and you can have low levels of salt in your body like sodium levels can go down so magnesium and potassium can go down as well if you stop taking thyroxide diuretics your blood sugar actually may but not always go back to normal next is cholesterol medication statins now before we get into that if you are enjoying

This video and learning something please click on the thumbs up subscribe and share the content let’s go back to our topic statins are a class of drugs that are commonly used to treat high cholesterol as you must know they work by inhibiting the enzyme hmg-coa reductase which is required for body to produce cholesterol now statins were first introduced in 2003 and

They have since been prescribed to millions and millions of people around the world in 2011 a study published in drama medical journal showed a link between taking higher doses of statin medications and the higher risk of type 2 diabetes this finding led to fda the u.s food and drug administration introducing warnings on statins in 2012 advising on the high risk

Of blood glucose levels and memory problems associated with the medication while statins are still widely prescribed it is important to be aware of the potential risks that are associated next on my list is antipsychotics antipsychotics are a type of medication that are used to treat scigizophrenia and other mental health conditions while they can be effective in

Managing symptoms they can also have some potential side effects like weight gain they’re actually horrible with the weight gain and blood sugar levels as a result will go up so if you are taking antipsychotics it is important to monitor your weight and blood sugar levels very closely if you experience any significant changes speak to your doctor about adjusting

Your dosage or discontinuing the medication now while this antipsychotics may cause temporary side effects if they are taken for an extended amount of time some of the effects such as diabetes may become permanent so therefore it is really important to weigh the risks and the benefits of taking this antipsychotics before starting a new medication regimen the

Most dangerous atypical antipsychotics for diabetes are thorazine clozapine olonzopine risperidone and quatiapine are typically these are atypical antipsychotics with a moderate risk of diabetes now there are some of them are like called cereal some antipsychotics are low risk for diabetes such as abilify or arapaprazole or ziprazodone etc lost on my list is birth

Control pills they do not necessarily cause diabetes but will definitely make you more insulin resistant and if you already have diabetes your blood sugar actually may go up after starting birth control pills so that’s it if you think this video helped you make sure you subscribe that will prevent missing any of our videos that is published three times a week stay
