  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I am trying to determine whether any of the above medications are affecting my blood sugar level. I have religious in following my diabetic diet for the last six months, have lost more than 10% of my body weight, exercise every day and I still can't get my daily blood sugar down. I am testing at home. My last A1c was 6.7 and if I can't get it down in the next 3 months I will be looking at taking medication. I don't want to do that. Would any of these drugs be causing me to sustain high levels?
