... Only diff med ive taken??
No it won't. You must not have had enough water, have an infection, or you ate something you shouldn't have last night.
Yes it is a rare side effect of taking tramadol. I am pre diabetic and never go over 130 but my blood sugar was 233 last night after taking it. I looked it up and it's rare but does occur.
Hi, i agree, increased blood sugar levels are a rare side effect of Tramadol. It occurs very infrequently, but it is a possibility.
Blood sugar was 64 at10:00 AM. Ate a banana and took a Tramadol. At 1:00 PM it was 279. Nothing else was taken or eaten. Banana has always taken care of low blood sugar but never shot up that high. I am diabetic and have sciatic nerve problem (reason for tramadol). ???
Put me on that list, also. it scared me because i am diabetic 2 and CANNOT take ANY of the meds because of allergies. So, as you can imagine i do EVERYTHING right. I am in a wheelchair so do not get any REAL exercise. i treat it with eggs and supplements - brought my A1C down from 11 to 6.0. i rarely take tramadol but last week i did (first time in 9 months) and my glucose level shot up for two days (from only one HCL 50 mg). it was extremely stressful trying to figure out what i did wrong, and like another viewer's response, the only ONLY thing i did differently was ta-da, the tramadol.
So, back to the drawing board boys and please start advising diabetics about this possibility -- i believe it's more prevalent than we know.
i love your site, very helpful, keep up the good work
I had the same thing happen to me. I have gained 13 pounds in the last five months. The only thing I have done different is take tramadol. It has kicked me out of Keto. You can hardly find this happening to people online, I'm happy I found this I was starting to think I was crazy.
