Flonase Side Effects

Flonase is the brand name for fluticasone nasal spray, a prescription drug used to prevent and reduce nasal inflammation. Doctors prescribe Flonase to treat symptoms of seasonal and year-round allergies. Flonase is a corticosteroid, a class of drugs (also referred to as steroids) that's used to reduce inflammation in the nasal passages, lungs, and skin, and is sometimes given orally for more severe conditions. In 2006, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the sale of fluticasone propionate nasal spray (the generic form of Flonase). Flonase works by reducing inflammation and swelling in the nose, which can lead to a number of allergy symptoms, including: Sneezing Congested or stuffy nose Runny nose Itchy nose Other nasal steroids are available over-the-counter, such as Rhinocort (budesonide). Veramyst (fluticasone furoate) is a prescription steroid that's ideal for people who benefit from fluticasone yet do not tolerate the occasional dripping into the throat linked to Flonase. Other Uses for Fluticasone Fluticasone is also available (under other brand names) as an aerosol inhaled by mouth, and as a topical cream or ointment applied to the skin. Flovent (fluticasone oral Continue reading >>

    Can the pancreas recover from fluticasone induced diabetes?

    Now I know what set off the 500+ blood sugar and the 11.6 a1c: fluticasone I took for my hay fever back in august/november 2015. Although my doctor rejected that, there are a lot of resources on fluticasone, how it can trigger diabetes in normal people with predisposition to being diabetic (either inherited or insulin resistant).
    Just yesterday I realized that the only medicine I hadn't been taking this month was fluticasone. It was changed by my allergist, 2 years ago after my heart attack. So with some regular use could have triggered those numbers.
    Since my release from the hospital my numbers have gone down comfortably and steadily, 113 average in the past week. I've been eating almost normally, carbs thrown in. So much that last night, my pre meal number was 119, and post meal 122 (2 hours later) and I ate 200 grams of pasta.
    Could this mean my pancreas is fine and this will eventually get into the normal BS? Again, I've eaten a multitude of carbs and my numbers barely go up.
    I surely hope this was just a scare. With my mother's history of diabetes I'll eventually get worse, but I think not just yet.

    Theoretically, yes. Cortisol not only increases the liver output of glucose, but it also restrains the pancreas from releasing insulin. It's very similar to people who have Cushings disease. If they are mildly hyperglycemic and the tumor is removed, as long as no long term damage has occurred, their glucose levels go back to normal.
    If you can eat pasta and barely get a post meal rise, it sure sounds like your pancreas is just fine. It's more like your body was exposed to a higher fasting for a long time and it's now altered things to be it's new setpoint, but many here have lowered their fasting levels back to normal over time. If you could do that, AND still have a good post meal response, you'd have good numbers all around.
    Now I have to do some looking here, for allergies years ago, I had been taking some meds I'm wondering now if were cortisone based, an inhaler and that flonase nasal spray stuff. Also, about 10 years ago I used to get allergy shots. Now I wonder.....

    Fluticasone is a corticosteroid. It can cause BG to rise but I don't think it actually affects the pancreas. The way I understand the effects of steroids is that they directly increase the amount of glucose the liver is putting out. You are seeing a good decrease in your numbers since you stopped taking it, so that's very good. But I think this is a warning that you are vulnerable to Type 2.
