my diabetes has sky rocketed since i started pradaxa 5 days ago
My type 2 diabetes was under control for the past 8 years my A1C in December 2011 was 6.4 then I started Pardaxa in December 2011 and my blood sugar when over the top. At my 3 month follow up in February 2012 my A1C was 11.6 and the only thing that changed was Pradaxa, now I'm on insulin and if my blood sugar don't go down I will go back on warfarin and the blood tests are alot better than my sugar being 350 up to HI.
Yes, I am a diabetic and have been on insulin with pretty good control unless I cheat. That being said I started on Pradaxa 3 weeks ago and in spite of watching my diet closely my blood sugars have spiked and are rarely under 200. More in the 250 range. Have not seen anything in the Pradaxa literature about it affecting blood sugar levels but was glad to see that others are having the same problem.
