Ibuprofen And Diabetes?

Registration is fast, simple and absolutely free so please, join our community today to contribute and support the site. This topic is now archived and is closed to further replies. I'm having a bit of neck and shoulder pain at the moment, it occurs maybe once or twice a year. I get it across my shoulders and sometimes up into the back of my head and down the top of my arms. I went through a barrage of tests with my Doctor a few years ago and we could not find any cause, Doc suspects it may be stress, he might be right Anyhow, Sunday night I had a bad nights sleep, woke at about 2.30am and slept badly for the rest of the night, I could feel the neck pain starting. Guess that's what I get for going to be too early (10.30pm) on Sunday. I was so tired yesterday morning I took a day off work. One of my work colleagues is a Type 1 and said that his wife had been told by a pharmacist that diabetics should not take ibuprofen. I would normally take ibuprofen to get some relief when this pain hits, I'm not a big pill taker (other than the ones I have to take ) but I did find that the ibuprofen worked for me for this pain. Now I'm a little confused, because my colleague was fairly certain Continue reading >>

    Yes, without a doubt! Trust me on this!
    There are a lot of cheap strips, but cheap is not always the best deal when the strips are giving you readings all over the place.
    Consistently, the Contour Next places as one of the best in Gary Scheiner’s best meter ratings:

    Choose Your Blood Glucose Meter Wisely! These days, there is lots of emphasis on accuracy, particularly when it comes to continuous glucose monitors (and their ability to match blood glucose values) and insulin pumps (and their ability to deliver...
    What is amazing, is that the strips are incredibly cheap too! When you buy the bigger amount of strips, they are cheaper per strip.
    On Amazon, 300 strips are about 22 cents per strip.

    You can’t get a better combination than that - top of the accuracy list, and cheap too!

    I have no complaints with the numbers I’ve seen on mine. You might find a bit cheaper, but not one as accurate and cheap! Only 22 cents!

  3. Irish

    Okay, so this is really helpful and helps put things in perspective. Thank you, @Eric !!
    Hypothetically speaking, of course, if I’m paying for verio test strips (200/$66), would it be worth transitioning to the contours (300/$68), assuming quality/reliability are thrown into the mix? On the whole, I’ve been pleased with my One Touch Verio. I did have what seemed to be a bad batch of strips recently, but then again, perhaps that batch fell prey to some humidity issues. Still, it’d be nice to have an extra 100 strips for $2.

    Thoughts? Thanks again for being our testing guru here. Can’t imagine this forum without you–which is to say, no absolutely insane tests in the near future, okay?!

Type 2 - Diabetes And Ibuprofen | Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community

Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community Hi all, I'm fairly recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I take 2 metformin a day and test my blood when I'm not feeling right. On Monday, I had a really bad headache and took 2 ibuprofen. This sent my blood sugars from 5.9 to 9.9. I didn't eat anything carb or sugar based, and I felt very lethargic, unable to stay awake and pretty bad nausea. Has anyone else experienced this? My diabetic nurse this morning said it was the first she had heard of it. Many thanks. It could be that whatever was causing the headache caused the additional problems too? Or maybe the Ibuprofen were coated in something sugary? I take a fair amount of them so I'll have to keep an eye on it! (I haven't been controlled until now so wouldn't have noticed any effect!) I was told some 3 or4 years ago that Ibuprofen was not good for diabetics A short course of ibuprofen seems to be alright. It is when they are used long term as they can affect the kidneys. They are also not advised for people with high blood pressure. Your rise in blood sugar could be attributable to the way that you were fe Continue reading >>

    From the email

    Good Morning, Mr. Fonorow...
    I have a question about Ascorsine and diabetes.
    Dad has his diabetes pretty well under control, but he has been getting some abnormal readings of late. He was reading (not sure where.. it was in a newspaper, but he cannot remember the source) that excessive levels of Vit C can cause erroneous readings in the regular blood glucose testers.
    Do you have any information about this? Are you aware if it is a known problem? It would go a long way towards explaining some of his readings.
    Christine

    Apparently it might... I've been doing some looking, and on the FDA site..
    http://www.fda.gov/diabetes/glucose.html
    it states (only the relevant part pasted here):

    Factors That Affect Glucose Meter Performance The accuracy of your test results depends partly on the quality of your meter and test strips and your training. Other factors can also make a difference in the accuracy of your results.
    Other Substances. Many other substances may interfere with your testing process. These include uric acid (a natural substance in the body that can be more concentrated in some people with diabetes), glutathione (an "anti-oxidant" also called "GSH"), and ascorbic acid (vitamin C). You should check the package insert for each meter to find what substances might affect its testing accuracy, and discuss your concerns with your health care provider.
    Unfortunately, they don't suggest what to do. From reading about the errors with the urine test, it seemed that Vit C caused false positives (glucose appeared to be present when it was not). The excerpt above from the FDA site notes that Vit C can cause errors with the blood meters, and I am assuming that it will similarly cause a reading higher than the actual reading (which is what seems to be the case with Dad).
    They speak about checking each meter's package insert for info as to if Vit C will affect it... so perhaps Dad might need to change his meter. I don't know if there are any meters that do not have a Vit C sensitivity, however.
    Christine
    From http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency ... 003438.htm

    Normal Values
    Range from before-meal glucose levels of 90 to 130 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL); after-meal values of less than 180 mg/dL. Values can vary depending on physical activity, meals, and insulin administration. Normal value ranges may vary slightly among different laboratories.
    Vitamin C blood levels range up to 1.5 mg/dl - so even if vitamin C were being counted by the blood analysis, the vitamin would only add a maximum of 1 to 2 percent to the reading.
    Urine is a different animal because "replacement " (not excessive!) doses of vitamin C wind up in the urine, but since a) animals make these amounts all day long, and b) most blood tests are probably tested on laboratory animals, one would think the urine tests would be able to account or filter ascorbate by now.

  2. ofonorow

    Her reply

    I understand what you are getting at, but I'm thinking about it from a different angle.
    The urine strips used to give false positives because both reagents used in the different strips (the copper reduction test that uses cupric sulfate, and the glucose oxidase test, which uses toluidine and glucose oxidase)
    reacted to Vit C as well as glucose.
    The many of the blood glucose machines also use the glucose oxidase test to produce a color change that is then translated into a numerical reading. The thing is, I am not at all sure that 1mg/dl of Vit C causes the same level of reaction as 1mg/dl of glucose. If it does, then your theory is correct, and there should be at most a 1-2% difference. If, however, 1mg/dl of Vit C causes a stronger reaction, it may well be that each 1mg/dl in the blood shows up as being the same as 50, 60, 100 mg/dl of glucose.
    Simple experiments could determine this, and it is hard to believe that such tests would be developed that didn't take into account "normal" blood leves of C? Especially if ANY laboratory animal testing was done.

  3. Lab Rat

    In DIABETES CARE, VOLUME 22, NUMBER 7, JULY 1999 there appeared a letter by Dr. Donald R. Branch, PhD entitled “High-Dose Vitamin C Supplementation Increases Plasma Glucose”. This letter describes "one 49-year-old slight-to-moderately obese, but otherwise healthy, male Caucasian who was found on routine examination to have elevated fasting plasma glucose". The patient appeared to have normal glycated hemoglobin A1c and normal urine glucose. The patient was taking greater than 4,500 mg/day of Vitamin C prior to testing. After 1 week without Vitamin C, serum glucose of the patient fell within normal range. When the patient resumed Vitamin C, his glucose was again elevated. Upon stopping Vitamin C again, his glucose levels return to normal levels. The patient refused to stop taking Vitamin C, but did reduce to 1,500 mg/day. At this level, the patient showed that glucose remained within normal levels. This indicated that in at least one person, Vitamin C may have a detrimental effect on serum glucose.
    I wonder if there are other people who may be similarly affected by Vitamin C. If so, what would the percentage of the population be? This letter has been widely referred to on the internet as demonstrating an undesirable side effect of Vitamin C. Is there any merit to Dr. Branch’s observation?
    The letter can be read on page 3 at the following link:

How Pain Relievers Can Affect Blood Sugar Levels

Many of us don’t even think about our blood sugar levels when we’re scrabbling through the medicine cabinet, looking for a pain reliever. We just want to make the pain disappear—stat. But people with diabetes do need to take that matter into consideration when they’re taking any medication. If you have type 2 diabetes, your doctor or diabetes educator has probably warned you to be vigilant about the effects that that your diet, your activity level, and any other medication you take on a regular basis can have on your blood sugar levels. You also need to be careful about any pain relieving medication that you take, even if it’s just on an occasional basis, because certain types of pain killers can lower or raise your blood sugar levels. NSAIDs There are times when you can easily treat pain with an over-the counter pain reliever. You may take a low dose of aspirin or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) like ibuprofen or naproxen to relieve the occasional headache or muscle pain. A regular dose is unlikely to affect your blood sugar levels, but a higher-than-usual dose may lower your blood sugar level. Talk to your doctor about what’s an appropriate dose for your Continue reading >>

    Confused about blood sugar levels 2 hours after a meal

    I have read conflicting information about what is an acceptable blood sugar reading 2 hours after eating a meal. I've read 150 and under is ok and have also read that under 180 is ok. Which is it does anyone know?

  2. Type1Lou

    It varies based on how tightly you want to be in control. Here's what Gary Scheiner says in his book "Think Like a Pancreas" when he charts a one-hour post meal target. It should be 160 or less for very tight control; 180 or less for typical control; and 200 or less for looser control.
