Hi everyone. I’ve been taking Atenolol for 3 months after coming off Bisoprolol and feel so much better. I have to go for a medication review later with GP and have been reading up on both of these beta blockers. It appears that most of these can cause diabetes which I have now been diagnosed with! I’ve also read that Carvedilol has no effect on blood sugar maintenance. The same goes for calcium channel blockers. With this in mind I am going to ask the GP his views as I feel I’m in a catch 22 situation. It was a shock as I’m not over weight and eat a good diet.
Has anybody else had experience of this?
