I find this curious. I am on that drug and it is not one of the meds that increases my blood sugar. Have you had any other changes in your meds. Many, ncluding antibiotics, will raise blood sugars.

Please provide more information. Thanks.

Do you know if there is any form of sugar in levothyroxine?

The pill is very small. If there was any sugar in it it would be micro amounts.

I saw nothing in the monographs indicating sugar presence.

You're right, if it was there, it would be miniscule. Thanx.

However, people with diabetes who take the med are to work with their Endo to change dosing of the levothyroxine.

Best to look for other sources of sugar such as dietary changes and new meds. Many meds, as I said, raise blood sugars.
