Starlix and Blood Sugar

Starlix 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 taking. In these situations, Starlix may not be enough to treat 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. You should also 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.
 

Starlix and Blood Sugar: Suggestions

Low and high blood sugar levels are known side effects of Starlix and can cause serious or even life-threatening complications. Prevention is the best treatment. Therefore, anyone taking Starlix should know the possible signs of high or low blood sugar and know what to do if they occur. Finally, it is important that anyone with diabetes know how to check his or her blood sugar levels and to check them often.
