srikanth raghavachari (1 year ago):
I was never diabetic and My Blood glucose fasting never touched even 100 before 4 months although i take medicine for hypertension. My GP prescribed Omaperazole 20mg for my acidity problem and i have been taking for 2 months , slowly my urinary input increased and i just went for fasting blood sugar i was shocked to see my fasting blood sugar shot to 150. I searched the net once i was convinced that omaperazole may be the culprit i have taken this medicine off from today. I see no major research into this area and GP are prescribing this drug indiscriminately . I want to know any research on this area. Pl share

Just like you, I´m sure as well. Some days after I stopped taking Omeprazol my blood glucose levels went back to normal levels. After one month I started with Omeprazol again and my bg level went up again. Now I`ve been without Omeprazol for about 4 months and my bg level is perfect. I eat, drink and live the same way I did when I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2004.

I'm fairly convinced tha tOmeprazole increases blood glucose levels. Since I stopped taking it my BG is so much better. What should I do about notifying people who can do some research into this. Obviously the manufacturer won't want to admit to anything.

I tested positive for methadone, I have never taken this drug. My Dr said I had to have taken it because it was there and that a false positive is out of the question. Could my meds cause methadone to show up on a urine drug test

- Does adderal have an effect on alzheimers? (1 answer)
Adderall has been effective in treatment of ADHD, and I like it. It is highly effective as treatment of lack of focus, and I find that tasks (such as academic research) are much enhanced by it. However I am beginning to experience what I fear is early stages of Alzheimer's.(I am 68). I have been studying the disease, and have been doing things recommended as valuable to retard Alzheimer's development as well as to counter symptoms such as forgetfulness, and loss of mental acuity with significant success. I believe, at least in the short run, Adderall has had a positive effect in my endeavors to counter the symptoms of the disease. However, since one of the principal causes of Alzheimer's is inflammation, I wonder if Adderall causes inflammation, and if it does, is there a way to counter the inflammation?

- Irregular heatbeat and prilosec
I am 65 M and a long history of Moderate hypertension. I am overweight, out of shape. 15-20 years ago when I didn't take BP medicine I had occasional PVCs, heart skips a beat.
Since I have been on Metoprolol (beta blocker) and Cozaar my BP is normal and heartbeat normal.
I have been on that regimen 15-20 years.
Now or in the last weeks or 2 I notice skipped beats and irregular, fast to slow and back on occasion
Recently It was suggested I may have sleep apnea and was definitely diagnosed with bad acid reflux by an Ear nose and throat specialist.
I was told to go on 2 OTC Prevacid/day for 3 months. I instead, since I had them, went on Prilosec-- slightly different.
I have been on Prilosec 2 or so weeks maybe 3.
It clicked in my mind today that maybe there is a connection.
I have a pretty expensive pulse oximeter (electronic finger thingy) and I can actually see flat lines and skipped beats and strength of pulse. Oxygen is 90 to 94. Also I started taking aspirin out of fear
- Victoza and liver cancer (cholangiocarcinoma)
My husband was recently diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer after taking Victoza for several years. The doctor discontinued the Victoza when the cancer was diagnosed but he actually started feeling better after he stopped it until the cancer started progressing. Since cholangiocarcinoma nd pancreatic cancer are similar, is there a link between Victoza and cholangiocarcinoma?
