    Does acetametaphine affect blood sugar levels?

    ive been taking acetaminophen for 1 1/2 yrs daily and about 1 yr ago started noticing type II diabetes symptoms(mother & papa had this) so i start testing my blood sugar & yep its looking like im pre-diabetic or already am my levels are high for months like 160-220 then normal for weeks like 110-130 & i read that you cant trust blood sugar readings if you regularly take acetaminophen. is this due to it raising it, lowering it or alltogether screwing up my blood sugar levels? what do i need to know about acetaminophen in relation to diabetes. and yes i know how bad it is for my liver but im actually sadly addicted to the opiates that come with acetaminophen, like it or not, heavily, and i have no dr. and dont do govt. slave plans in any way(state of federal or county)--thats my right, so im stuck with what i can get on the street:( but i do like to be informed on what exactally im doing 2 myself so i dont scratch my head later & go "hmmm i wonder why this happened" :)
