Actoplus Met and High Blood Sugar

Even in people with well-controlled diabetes, high blood sugar is possible. For example, fever, infections, injury, or surgery can temporarily increase blood sugar levels in people with diabetes, regardless of the medicine they are on. In these situations, Actoplus Met may not be enough to treat your diabetes, and the use of insulin may be required. Contact your healthcare provider if you have a fever, infection, injury, or will be having surgery. Contact your healthcare provider immediately if you notice any possible symptoms of high blood sugar. These include, but are not limited to:
 
  • Increased hunger
  • Increased thirst
  • Increased urination
  • Blurred vision
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea or vomiting.
