Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Am I having a drug interaction which is causing my blood sugars to rise? My blood sugar 2 hrs ago was 459.


  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • I have been on Lisinopril for high blood pressure for 25 years, no problems. About 15 years ago I began having problems with reflux. I took Aciphex for about 6 years and the problem went away. 3 years ago I had to begin treatment for reflux again, this time with Prilosec OTC. I took it for about 6 months and was able to stop again. I had to have two stents in my heart 20 months ago (blockage only, no heart attack) and was on Plavix for 6 very long months. I am still having issues with internal bleeding even after stopping the Plavix. Dr put me on Omeprazole while I was still on the Plavix. About 6 months after starting the Omeprazole my doctor announced that I had type 2 diabetes, which floored me. He put me on Metformin and I began battling high glucose levels. About 6 months ago, I stopped taking the Omeprazole and my sugar levels went down significantly, even to the point that I could stop my medication (while limiting sugar and carbs). I started back on the Omeprazole three weeks ago, and my sugar has skyrocketed again. I am back on the full dose of Metformin (1500 mg a day), but my sugar ranges from 120 after fasting to 260 at peak times. I am looking for an alternative to the Omeprazole, and I am certain it was at least partly responsible for my developement of type 2 Diabetes. I wonder how many others this has happened to. The sad thing is that the Doctors don't have a clue about any of this.


  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • trace amounts of blood in urine; Dr. prescribed Cipro antibiotic, blood sugar high (173) from normal of 114-120. I'm a Type II Diabetic
