A complex disease like diabetes often causes many illnesses to develop in the body of the patient which often requires a number of medicines in addition to the insulin injections or diabetes medication. But you have to assess yourself, the behavior of your body to these medicines and check whether their mixing causes any bad consequences on the body, and unfortunately not all doctors can do this, which you would like them to do. A diabetic takes six medicines at a time, on average.

9 Common drugs that every diabetic should avoid mixing with their Meds

Before taking any drugs, be careful because sometimes the drugs which a patient takes during the diabetes are actually the cause of diabetes itself! Medication used for the treatment of high blood pressure is one of them. Here some of them are mentioned along with the health menaces they pose.

o Beta blockers: insulin release in the bloodstream is faded by the beta blockers such as Lopressor, Tenormin, and Inderal.

o Minoxidil: blood glucose levels are raised by this medicine.

o Thiazide diuretics: cause the loss of potassium and hence increase of blood glucose levels. HydroDiuril, Diuril, Zaroxolyn, and Oretic.

o Calcium channel blockers: insulin release is reduced by drugs such as Calan, Isoptin, Aadalat, Procardia, Norvasc etc.

o Oral contraceptives: hypoglycemia is the outcome of the increased levels of estrogens. Nowadays this problem is not very common, due to improvement in the medication.

o Corticosteroids: these cause the hyperglycemia, although these are used as topical solution.

o Niacin: diabetics may suffer high blood glucose levels if they use this vitamin B for lowering blood cholesterol levels.

o Thyroid hormone: pancreas’ insulin production reduces, causing hyperglycemia, due to this hormone’s increased levels.

o Diphenylhydantoin: release of insulin is completely or very severely blocked as side effect of this drug, called Dilantin, which is prescribed for controlling seizures.
