... 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?
I am Type II diabetic and my numbers were running between 90 and 110 however since starting Xarelto my numbers have been extremely high running between low 200 to a high of 319.
Yes, I am having the same problem as you!
I started xarelto 5 months ago and my blood sugars increased from below 90 to 110 fasting. I am considering changing to another kind.
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.
Yes, I have noticed a spike. Never have I had a 256 reading. Upsetting to say the least.
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..
Absolutely my blood sugar increased significantly as has my weight and now have a lot of fluid retention.Gained about 26 lbs but my diet is the same. Today I called Janssen@16097306553 an d reported these side effects, and encourage all of you who are having side effects to do the same as it is important that they have this information.
Ever since I've been on Xarelto (Feb 15) I can't get my blood sugar down and it's really depressing me badly
I started Xeralto at the end of November because I have been diagnosed with DVT. My blood sugar readings have increased significantly, 25-30 across the board daily.
I sent my doctor an email today. I'll let y'all know her response.
Check my sugar it was 225 I didn't eat anything I took Xarelto it went to 325 after
My dad has Diabetis taken shots. Was on Coumadin I asked the dr to see if he can try Xarelto cause to hard to take to get blood work all the time. Took off Coumadin wait 3 days started on Xarelto my dads levels dropped but yet I feed him good. He has been off a lot of meds and no more insulin. I’m strick on his foods. His doctor says how do you do it ? my dad should have passed along time ago. His wife fed him all the bad stuff.
I give him lot of cucumbers , tomatoes , chopped celery , bell peppers a lot with his meals. I make a bag of all so all I do is scoop it out for him put some vinegar and the Mexican seasons. I wrote what I fed him check his blood sugars before n after to see what spikes it, did it for a month. I cut out all his sugars let’s say I’m in charge of them. Watch his salts.
He tells the dr I’m a drill Sargent he can’t eat anything till it ok by Me
He was on the 20 mg now he been on 10 and now I want him off cause he is doing so good. Looking at a lower dose which might be baby aspirin of course dr approve. Dr and I have talked about it.
I took over his care in 2015 it is now 2020 he was 413 lbs, congestive heart failure, Diabetis, COPD. He is 215-220 lbs, his heart was 30% now 95% no more COPD. The Drs are amazed and ask say I should have been a dr.
Watch what you eat. If meds don’t work then have them changed to something that works. 1st watch your foods. Starches turn to sugar that is the worse. Lean meat, red potatoes or mashed Cauliflower ( very good) yams lot of green veggies no sugar drinks I put my dad on crystal light oat or almond milk.
Take care of your bodies, this medication helped my dad.
I am type 2 and metformin had kept my sugar down. I was prescribed Xarelto five months
ago for clots and my sugar has spiked. It dawned on me that Xarelto might be the cause. Reading other peoples' comments is concerning. I will be contacting my hematologist and the FDA.
