For years my mom took Glyburide for diabetes. She was also on lasix due to the fluid retention that we thought was caused by the high blood pressure. The lasix would interrupt her sleep at night and caused her to have UTDs (from multiple bathroom trips). I took her to Dr. Frederico Maese (Red Oak, Texas) who examined her heart to see if the fluid was congestive heart failure. After doing an ekocardiogram, he determined that her heart was in great shape. For years she was told that she had heart problems, but that was not the case. He immediately took her off glyburide which he felt was causing the fluid retention that was starting to build up around her joints and her heart. He put her on Lasix for two weeks and she lost all of that fluid, about 15 lbs. Mom is now 85 years old and is going great (with the the occasional arthritis pains). Her doctor changed from glyburide to metformin. No more lasix and her high blood pressure is great too. No more UTDs and she can sleep through the night. Glyburide may be good for some, but not for all.
