... higher than before Xarelto? I am a type II diabetic but am now taking insulin. Since I started Xarelto (about a month ago), I find that my blood sugar levels are far higher than before Xarelto, even though I have increased my insulin by three times the usual amount and still can't bring it down much. Anyone else here have that sort of problem?
My husband has been on Xarelto since Oct. last year. We have noticed that his once controlled diabetes has took a spike hike from 200 to over 300... Dr has tried him on several diabetes meds with no luck... Have tried changing other meds he takes but still no help. Just seen this sight tonight. Going to call Dr. in the morning to see about changing his med.
I had recently had to start taking Xarelto for clotting issues and in my entire life have never had an issue with my glucose levels. Now my doctor is telling me I am "pre diabetic" with the latest blood test.
I am glad I thought to do a search for "Xarelto and blood glucose" as it lead me here and gave me the resolve to ask my doctor for an alternative even though I think I am limited there by insurance. I don't need another health problem to be caused by this I have enough already.
My husband's blood work came back horrible after 2 mo on xarelto. A1c jumped 2 points to 9.4 and glucose 259. Doc wants to put him on insulin shots. Going back to warfarin to see if it comes back down. Docs say it's not caused by xarelto, but nothing else changed in the last two months. Will post results in 3 months.
You need to talk to your healthcare provider. I originally posted that question in 2013, I think. I went back on Warfarin and shortly afterwards, my glucose levels went back to normal range of 110-120 throughout the day. When I spoke with my doctor and brought up that I suspected that the drug had not been tested on diabetics, she agreed that it was entirely possible. Once my levels returned to normal range for me. we agreed that it had to have been an adverse effect of the drug. Don't keep increasing your insulin without talking to your doctor about finding a substitute for Xarelto. Oh, yes you can eat healthy salads while taking warfarin, all that has to be done is an adjustment to the amount of Warfarin. I took 5 mg of Warfarin 5 days a week and 7.5mg of Warfarin 2 days per week and that kept the INR in check. I hope this helped you.
Yes, I was taking Xarelto for blood clots and discovered that I had become insulin resistent. I got off the Xarelto and now take pradaxa when traveling to avoid clotting... This I told my doctor that I never had blood sugar issues prior to taking the Xarelto.. It almost sent me into having diabetes.. It took me 2.5 years to completely recover.. through diet and excersizing and fasting.. and prayer to GOD for a cure because I did not know what was wrong with me until I went to the correct doctor who told me i needed to take metformin because of my blood sugar levels..
