I was taking hctz for blood pressure control for over five yrs. I noticed my glucose levels rose to 10.9 and my cholesterol had risen to 337. After stopping the hctz, my glucose dropped to 7.5 and my cholesterol dropped to 243.
My new cardiologist prescribed lasix 20 mgs and verapamil 360 for me to controll my bp. I need to know if lasix can raise glucose or cholesterol. I am a diabetic and read in my Diabetes Forecast that diuretics aren't usually prescribed for diabetics.
