  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • I am on Glipizide ER 10mg for type 2 diabeties, which I take in the mornings. I also take 30 units of Lantus Solo Star insulin in the evening, which keeps my blood sugar in normal levels. Since beginning Stelara about 3 1/2 weeks ago my blood sugar levels have been 248 - 311. I am due for another injection of Stelara in a few day. Is stelara supposed to increase blood sugar levels and should I report this to my Dr.?
