I am 48 years old and I have not been diabetic till now. Three months ago, my blood pressure readings were higher than usual and my doctor changed my medicines (Omnitan-H 20 mg and Amlopin-M 20 mg to Olmetrack 40 mg and Lnbloc 10 mg). I took the new medicines for some time, but they did not suit me as I had white coat hypertension and I stopped taking them with the consent of another doctor and returned to the older ones. He gave me some new medicines (Zevit, Clonafit Beta and Antoxid) to treat the anxiety and nervous weakness issues caused by the hypertension medicines. I have read that the side effect of these medicines is high blood sugar. I went for an early morning fasting blood sugar test last week, I had taken a glass of milk before sleeping and I took fenugreek water and garlic in the morning to lower my blood pressure. I had also been eating some sugarcane for a week before the test. My blood sugar was diagnosed to be 126 mg/dL. Is this because of the medicines and above factors? Or am I in the risk of being diabetic now?
