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.
