Aldosteronism a.k.a. Conn's Disease [posted
Question: After years of low Potassium levels(in the 2's) they diagnosed
aldostroism. I have been taking Aldactone for 6 yrs along with 6-10mq potassium pills a
day. I now have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes...could the high blood sugar be caused
by the aldactone. I am now on Glucophage, Tiazac, Lotensin, aldactone and the potassium.
Are they all compatible?
Answer:Diuretics can elevate blood sugar slightly, but, not usually enough to
cause diabetes mellitus. These drugs are all compatible.
