Hi there,

I’m new to all of this and was recently diagnosed and started on a mixture of meds. Metformin, gliclazide, antorvastatin, and most recently candesartan. I’ve had my numbers pretty balanced(around 6)for the past two months but since starting the candesartan I haven’t been able to keep it below 8…frustrating since I haven’t changed my diet.


#2

Are you referring to A1C or fasting?


#3

My fasting is coming up between 8-9 and I haven’t had my three month AIC done yet and started on the candesartan after my last one which was just under 7.


#4

In US, that would be 144-162. I am T1, and not familiar with candesartan.

Hopefully someone can help that is familiar. You could edit your title to include the drug name.

But certainly something you should discuss with doctor.

I would ask my pharmacist if this BP drug would affect my Blood sugar. I am not sure why it would. And welcome to the group. Nancy50
