Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Hyperglycemia
Hyperglycemia [posted 7/30/98]
Answer: No obvious interaction. What are the glucose reading the rest of the day? That is, are they also high - suggesting he needs another medication added to micronase or insulin. Or are they well controlled. If relatively low, I would check his glucose about 3 a.m. There are patients who experience hypoglycemia at this point in the morning and the morning rise reflects the bodies reaction to hypoglycemia. Further medications will only make this worse. If his 3 a.m. is high, he needs additional medications.
