Can Antibiotics Affect Insulin Levels?

In this video I discuss what are hormones, and how do hormones work. I also cover the types of hormones, water soluble hormones, and fat soluble hormones, what is glucagon, as well as the functions of hormones. Transcript (partial with notes) What are hormones, and what do hormones do? Hormones are messengers that are released mainly by glands, and they travel in the bloodstream through all parts of the body to targeted cells. Hormones then tell these cells what to do. How do hormones work? Types of hormones. Water soluble hormones bind to receptors on the surface of cells, and the message is delivered, and the cell does its duty. Fat soluble hormones actually enter cells and bind to receptors once inside. Again, message is delivered and the cell does its duty. What do hormones do? What is glucagon? For example glucagon is a hormone produced by the pancreas. After we eat, carbohydrates are broken down into glucose. The liver sends some of this glucose into the bloodstream to cells throughout the body. The cells use glucose as energy. The liver takes any extra glucose and stores it as glycogen, or as fat. As this glucose in the bloodstream gets used up by the cells, the liver needs to release more, and this is where glucagon comes in. The pancreas releases glucagon hormones which attach to receptors on liver cells. Glucagon tells the liver cells, we need more glucose, and the liver cells convert the stored glycogen into glucose, and releases it to keep those hungry cells fed. Functions of hormones. There are many different hormones in the body that have many different functions. There are hormones that help with blood pressure regulation, development of white blood cells, in response to stress, regulation of water retention in the kidneys, and I could go on and on and on, but I think you get the picture, they are kind of important in the body.

    I recently went to my GP as I suspected an infected toe nail (that was ingrown and i picked it out myself :roll: ) she prescribed some antibiotics. A few days before seeing the GP my blood sugars were pretty stable although had some unusual hypos which I don't normally experience.
    Anyway since being on the antibiotics the past couple of days my blood sugars have been completely erratic and has left me feeling pretty lousy - i'm so thirsty all the time even if my blood sugar is normal and just feel generally yuck. My toe is feeling better and so I suspect the infection is no longer there, so is it the antibiotics that is making my blood sugar do all sorts of crazy things? should i do anything or just ride it out for the next 3 days until my AB course is finished?
    My blood sugars are as follows:
    woke up yesterday morning 13.4, Had my usual porridge and banana, gave insulin and correcting dose. 2 hours later my BS is 18. Give correction.
    By lunch time my BS is 4.1. Eat bagel with cream cheese for lunch, give normal amt of insulin. 2 hours later 3.1.
    4 glucose tablets blood shoots up to 9.3 and stays there.
    Have dinner, give 1 unit correction with my normal dose plus lantus.
    2 hours after dinner my BS is 15. Give correction and go to bed.
    Wake up today BS is 5.4. Porridge and almond milk with no banana, 6.4 2 hours later. Have a banana mid morning.
    Cous cous and roast veg and chicken for lunch. Before dinner 10.9 or something in the 10's. Have my dinner of sweet potato and quorn sausage, give correction dose of 2 plus normal insulin plus lantus. Blood sugar rockets up to 18!! Give correction and is now down to 12.
    There doesn't seem to be a real pattern as I woke up high yesterday but not today, was high yesterday before lunch but not today. High after dinner both times. Driving me a bit mental. I hate feeling out of control and just want some stability!

    Some antibiotics can have effects on blood sugar levels and some will affect different people in different ways. About 2 years ago I started what ended up as a lengthy course of various A/B's - about 8 or 9 different ones over 12 months. The fact that you have an infection that the A/B's are fighting may also cause the BG to vary. Once they start to get on top of the infection the blood sugar level can drop, since infections can raise the levels to start with. Sometimes they can hamper the digestion which, of course, will affect your sugar levels too.
    The information leaflet will tell you if the particular A/B's you're on can have side effects of raising or lowering sugar levels, but I find that it is the infection and the A/B's fighting it that create most of the problems, along with a lack of appetite that some A/B's give me.

    It's more than likely the infection is causing the raised bg rather than the antibiotics.

8 Sneaky Things That Raise Your Blood Sugar Levels

Skipping breakfast iStock/Thinkstock Overweight women who didn’t eat breakfast had higher insulin and blood sugar levels after they ate lunch a few hours later than they did on another day when they ate breakfast, a 2013 study found. Another study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that men who regularly skipped breakfast had a 21 percent higher chance of developing diabetes than those who didn’t. A morning meal—especially one that is rich in protein and healthy fat—seems to stabilize blood sugar levels throughout the day. Your breakfast is not one of the many foods that raise blood sugar. Here are some other things that happen to your body when you skip breakfast. Artificial sweeteners iStock/Thinkstock They have to be better for your blood sugar than, well, sugar, right? An interesting new Israeli study suggests that artificial sweeteners can still take a negative toll and are one of the foods that raise blood sugar. When researchers gave mice artificial sweeteners, they had higher blood sugar levels than mice who drank plain water—or even water with sugar! The researchers were able to bring the animals’ blood sugar levels down by treating them with a Continue reading >>

The different types of insulin are categorized according to how fast they start to work (onset) and how long they continue to work (duration). The types now available include rapid-, short-, intermediate-, and long-acting insulin. Insulin usually is given as an injection into the tissues under the skin, although it can also be given through an insulin pump, an insulin pen, or a jet injector, a device that sprays the medicine into the skin. Research is ongoing to develop not only new forms of insulin but also insulin that can be taken in other ways, such as by mouth.

Medications To Avoid When Taking Insulin

At last count, there are more than 700 medications that potentially interact with insulin with varying degrees of significance. Typically a negative drug interaction either decreases or increases insulin's effects, posing the risk of high or low blood glucose. But rather than insisting that you avoid these medications, it's more likely your doctor will want to adjust your insulin dosage for the period you take them. Commonly prescribed drugs for chronic conditions that may require an adjustment in insulin dosage include: Prednisone Olanzapine thyroid hormones ACE inhibitors selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) sulfonamides disopyramide quinine and quinidine In addition, some drugs that are prescribed for temporary conditions, such as antibiotics for infection, may require an adjustment to your insulin dosage. It's best to check drug interaction information with your pharmacist or physician, and to double-check with your pharmacist each time you refill a prescription of insulin. By Joyce A. Generali, M.S. FASHP, R.Ph., director of the University of Kansas Drug Information Center and the author of The Pharmacy Technician’s Pocket Drug Reference From our sister publicatio Continue reading >>

    Can antibiotics affect blood sugar levels?

    I have a chest infection. I was prescribed Amoxicillin 250mg x 3 per day last Friday. Since Sunday my blood sugar levels have been getting increasingly higher each day. Does anyone know if this could be due to the antibiotics? Or, could it just be due to my being more inactive than usual - sitting or laying around more as opposed to going to work etc?
    Any advice/help gratefully received. (I am seeing my GP in 2 hours and will be asking her too.)
    Thanks

    I don't know about the anti-biotics, but I do know that being sick can make you high, and like you said, lazing around (ahh, bliss) means slightly higher numbers too.
    If the anti-b's DO affect BG then you have a triple dose!
    You could try going easy on the carbs for a few days if you want to see lower numbers, but if it's not affecting you too badly there's probably no harm in riding it out. Up to what you can handle, I guess.
    Hope you're feeling better real soon!
