I am wondering if anyone else is taking Madopar and have been told that they are now Diabetic.
Apparently the drug can alter blood glucose levels but how much I am unable to find out.
I had words with my Consultant neurologist and GP who both say they have never heard of such a thing, yet it quite clearly states :-
This medicine may affect the results of certain laboratory tests, including those for testing glucose levels in blood or urine. If you have diabetes ask your doctor for further information about this. Tell your doctor that you are taking this medicine if you have any blood or urine tests.
If this drug affects the blood glucose levels, does it do it enough to be mistaken for Diabetes?
It is a quite simple question but one that I cannot get an answer to.
I asked my GP if I need to keep an eye on my Blood sugar levels
He just dismissed it and said no need to. but again it clearly states that if you are Diabetic and on madopar blood glucose levels should be monitored closely.
The trouble is no one will give you a satisdfactory answer and look at you as if you are three sheets in the wind.
