I gave a 10 mg tablet to Hanzi and he was 139 right before I gave it to him but about 2 hours later, he was 398. I can't tell if it was from the medicine or from the allergies themselves. I hate allergies. they must be bad this year, cause they got me(usually I don't get sick from them) No, Zytec wouldn't have caused it. I feel for you though. Kenna has them and her bg has been all over the place for almost 3 weeks now. Allergies can affect bg's that much? That would explain my constant adjustment of basals! You're not alone...my 7 y.o. started on Zyrtec this weekend and has been high on and off since. There are, of course, a million variables but I've been wondering the same thing... Zyrtec wouldn't cause the high, but having allergies bothering you would. No doubt.:cwds: That's why I'm always on Seth's case to take his allergy meds.

Sneezes And Wheezes: Seasonal Allergies And Diabetes

Sneezes And Wheezes: Seasonal Allergies And Diabetes

Spring is really starting to burst out here in Massachusetts. The tulips are blooming and leaves and buds are popping out on the trees. As pretty and welcoming as this is, many of you (about 50 million!) are probably bracing yourself for all of the pollen that is soon to follow, and suffering through the misery that it can bring. Thanks to the mild winter that we had in the Northeast, plants are pollinating earlier than usual. As if that weren’t bad enough, having seasonal allergies can also affect your blood sugar control. Seasonal allergies: do you have them? Seasonal allergies are sometimes called hay fever or, more technically, seasonal allergic rhinitis. You might be wondering if your symptoms are due to a cold, flu, or allergies. While there can be some overlap, the following symptoms are usually indicative of allergies: • Itchy eyes • Watery eyes • Dark circles under the eyes • Sneezing • Runny nose • Stuffy nose • Sore throat You might also feel a little bit tired. You won’t get a fever from allergies, however. These symptoms can linger for weeks unless they’re treated. Treating allergies There are a number of remedies for seasonal allergies, including oral medications, nasal sprays, and eye drops. It’s important that you not only choose the right one for your symptoms, but that you also are aware of how these medicines might affect your blood sugars. The following types of allergy medicines may affect your blood glucose levels or how you manage them: Antihistamines. These medicines can reduce sneezing, runny nose, and itchy and watery eyes. Common antihistamines include diphenhydramine (Benadryl), loratidine (Alavert, Claritin), cetirizine (Zyrtec Allergy), and fexofenadine (Allegra Allergy). Antihistamines might be combined with a deconge Continue reading >>

The H1-receptor Antagonist Cetirizine Ameliorates High-fat Diet-induced Glucose Intolerance In Male C57bl/6 Mice, But Not Diabetes Outcome In Female Non-obese Diabetic (nod) Mice

The H1-receptor Antagonist Cetirizine Ameliorates High-fat Diet-induced Glucose Intolerance In Male C57bl/6 Mice, But Not Diabetes Outcome In Female Non-obese Diabetic (nod) Mice

Published online 2015 Mar 6. doi: 10.3109/03009734.2014.967422 The H1-receptor antagonist cetirizine ameliorates high-fat diet-induced glucose intolerance in male C57BL/6 mice, but not diabetes outcome in female non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice Science for Life Laboratory, Department of Medical Cell Biology, Uppsala University, Box 571, SE-751 23 Uppsala, Sweden Correspondence: Nils Welsh, Science for Life Laboratory, Department of Medical Cell Biology, Box 571, BMC, SE-751 23 Uppsala, Sweden.

This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. It has been proposed that the histamine 1-receptor (H1-receptor) not only promotes allergic reactions, but also modulates innate immunity and autoimmune reactions. In line with this, we have recently reported that the H1-receptor antagonist cetirizine partially counteracts cytokine-induced beta-cell signaling and destruction. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine whether cetirizine affects diabetes in NOD mice, a model for human type 1 diabetes, and glucose intolerance in high-fat diet C57BL/6 mice, a model for human glucose intolerance. Female NOD mice were treated with cetirizine in the drinking water (25 mg/kg body weight) from 9 until 30 weeks of age during which precipitation of diabetes was followed. Male C57BL/6 mice were given a high-fat diet from 5 weeks of age. When the mice were 12 weeks of age cetirizine was given for 2 weeks in the drinking water. The effects of cetirizine were analyzed by blood glucose Continue reading >>

Claritin Vs. Zyrtec: A Comparison Of Antihistamine Allergy Drugs

Claritin Vs. Zyrtec: A Comparison Of Antihistamine Allergy Drugs

Claritin ( loratadine ) and Zyrtec ( cetirizine ) are part of a family of second-generation antihistamines used for treatment of hay fever allergies and hives . This group of drugs also includes fexofenadine ( Allegra ) and azelastine ( Astelin ) The advantage of Claritin and Zyrtec is they cause less drowsiness than older anti- allergy drugs like Benadryl or hydroxyzine . Cetirizine and loratadine are very similar. Both interact with few other drugs, but the drugs that cause adverse reactions when combined with Claritin are different than the ones that cause bad reactions with Zyrtec. Another difference is Zyrtec, according to a 2014 study, is also more likely than Claritin to cause drowsiness as a side effect. Hay fever ( allergic rhinitis ), hives ( urticaria ), and pollen -induced asthma are all reactions to histamines released by the body in response to an allergen (dust, pollen, or animal dander). Second-generation antihistamine drugs like Claritin and Zyrtec keep cells from interacting with histamine, thereby preventing allergy symptoms . Histamine is a relatively simple, nitrogen-based compound manufactured in special white blood cells called mast cells. Histamine is a crucial messenger chemical used for all kinds of important physiological and neurological functions. The function a histamine molecule performs in any given physiological process depends not on the chemical itself, but how cell proteins latch onto and interpret it. Researchers have identified four different histamine receptor proteins thus far, named H1 through H4. They each kick off drastically different processes when exposed to histamine. A lot of H1 receptor proteins are located on the outer membranes of nerve cells and blood vessel cells in the mucous membranes of the airways and gut - basic Continue reading >>

Choosing A Antihistamine For Diabetics

Choosing A Antihistamine For Diabetics

Choosing the Right Antihistamine as a Diabetic written by: AngelicaMD edited by: Diana Cooper updated: 5/6/2011 Diabetics who suffer from allergies, flu, colds and cough sometimes take over-the-counter (OTC) drugs such as antihistamines. Choosing the right antihistamine as a diabetic is important because many OTC drugs may affect blood sugar levels and cause other undesired side effects. Many diabetic people who experience symptoms of flu, colds, cough and allergies are often not sure if they are suffering from infection or allergies. The symptoms may be similar and so people often buy over-the-counter drugs (OTC) that contain combinations of ingredients which target these symptoms all at once. These symptoms may include headache, fever, runny nose and weakness, for which OTC drugs combining pain relievers, antihistamines, nasal decongestants, cough suppressants and other ingredients are sold. Antihistamines block the action of histamines which are produced by normal cells in reaction to allergens, thus preventing symptoms like runny nose, excessive tearing, itchiness and other allergic reactions. OTC antihistamines are usually combined with other drugs such as nasal decongestants, cough suppressants, expectorants, pain relievers, etc to relieve cough, colds and other flu symptoms. First generation or older preparations of antihistamines often cause drowsiness. Examples of these are diphenhydramine (Benadryl) and chlorpheniramine (Chlortrimeton). These are usually taken when one is expected to rest in bed and contraindicated for persons who are driving vehicles or heavy equipment. Second generation antihistamines are the newer class of drugs which are non-sedating and are taken by people who work or go to school. They include certirizine (Zyrtec) and loratadine (Clarit Continue reading >>

Zyrtec (cetirizine) - Side Effects, Dosage, Interactions - Drugs

Zyrtec is the brand name of cetirizine, an over-the-counter (OTC) antihistamine used to treat cold and allergy symptoms such as sneezing, itching, watery eyes, or runny nose. Cetirizine is also used to treat itching and swelling caused by chronic hives. Manufactured by McNeil-PPC, Inc, Zyrtec comes in the form of tablets, chewable tablets, and syrup. Zyrtec was a prescription medication until 2007 when The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved it as an OTC medication. Following the approval, Zyrtec was reportedly the highest-grossing new non-food product of 2008 in the United States. Zyrtec-D is a combination of the main ingredient of Zyrtec (cetirizine) with the decongestant pseudoephedrine and is approved to treat cold or allergy symptoms, including: Adults and children 12 years and over should take 1 tablet of Zyrtec-D every 12 hours and not more than 2 tablets over a 24-hour period. The effects of Zyrtec-D use on an unborn baby are not known. However, the active ingredients can pass into breast milk. If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during your treatment, talk to your doctor before taking Zyrtec-D. Zyrtec and Claritin, which are both over-the-counter allergy medications (no prescription is needed to use them), are often confused with one another and some people even use them interchangeably. Although they have similar effects for those who use them, each of these drugs has different ingredients (cetirizine for Zyrtec and loratadine for Claritin), and may cause different side effects in certain people. If you are taking other medications, or if you have liver or kidney problems, talk to your doctor before taking either Zyrtec or Claritin. Zyrtec is sometimes used to treat dermatitis in dogs, under the supervision of a veterinarian, although it ha Continue reading >>

Drugs That Can Raise Bg

Drugs That Can Raise Bg

By the dLife Editors Some medicines that are used for treating other medical conditions can cause elevated blood sugar in people with diabetes. You may need to monitor your blood glucose more closely if you take one of the medicines listed below. It’s important to note that just because a medicine has the possibility of raising blood sugar, it does not mean the medicine is unsafe for a person with diabetes. For instance, many people with type 2 diabetes need to take a diuretic and a statin to lower blood pressure and cholesterol. In these and many other cases, the pros will almost always outweigh the cons. Don’t ever take matters of medication into your own hands. Discuss any concerns you have with your healthcare provider. Certain Antibiotics Of all the different antibiotics, the ones known as quinolones are the only ones that may affect blood glucose. They are prescribed for certain types of infection. Levofloxacin (Levaquin) Ofloxacin (Floxin) Moxifloxacin (Avelox) Ciprofloxacin (Cipro, Cipro XR, Proquin XR) Gemifloxacin (Factive) Second Generation Antipsychotics These medicines are used for a variety of mental health conditions. There is a strong association between these medicines and elevated blood sugar, and frequent monitoring is recommended. Clozapine (Clozaril) Olanzapine (Zyprexa) Paliperidone (Invega) Quietiapine (Seroquel, Seroquel XR) Risperidone (Risperdal) Aripiprazole (Abilify) Ziprasidone (Geodon) Iloperidone (Fanapt) Lurasidone (Latuda) Pemavanserin (Nuplazid) Asenapine (Saphris) Beta Blockers Beta blockers are used to treat high blood pressure and certain heart conditions.

Allergy Tips For People With Diabetes

Allergy Tips For People With Diabetes

Aaachoooo! It's that time of year again: spring allergy season. For about 1 in 5 people, warm weather brings not only blooming flowers and trees but also the telltale symptoms of hay fever (seasonal allergies) -- sneezing, coughing, runny or stuffy nose, scratchy throat, and itchy eyes. For those with type 2 diabetes, spring allergies don't directly affect blood sugar, but there are things you need to watch out for, says Gerald Bernstein, MD, FACP. HE's the director of the Diabetes Management Program at the Friedman Diabetes Institute, Beth Israel Medical Center in New York. For relief from itching, sneezing, and runny nose, you might reach for an over-the-counter (OTC) medication such as an antihistamine, which millions have used safely, Bernstein says. "But when you're throwing something like issues around blood sugar into the mix, you need to be a little more aware of the potential things that can occur." One in five people who use antihistamines become drowsy, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). "So if you take a nap and miss a meal, you can wake up with low blood sugar," Bernstein says. Look for newer antihistamines with less of a sedative effect or talk with a pharmacist about the side effects of various medications. To unclog a stuffy nose, you might choose an OTC or prescription nasal spray, but you might not know that some contain steroids. "Steroids stimulate the liver to make more glucose [blood sugar], so now your liver is beginning to make more sugar," Bernstein says. "And if you're not aware of this, you might be surprised and ask, ‘Why are my numbers high?'" Ask your doctor or pharmacist about nasal sprays without steroids. You have two choices: an OTC decongestant nasal spray or an OTC antihistamine nasal spray. If you cho Continue reading >>
