Diovan should not cause your mother's blood sugars to go up. Diovan works to protect her kidneys from renal failure, a common disorder with diabetes when not in tight control. She should be monitoring her blood sugars four times daily if they are high and be careful of what she is eating.

Yes, I called the company & they stated it should not affect my blood sugar, however, it was 200+ for the 2 days I took it. My meds have been changed.

As to why someone's blood pressure would go down when they are taking Diovan and also have diabetes, this is usually actually due to a two-fold affect.

Diabetes can cause elevated blood pressure, so if they start to get it under better control, then it will naturally start to go down, then you are usually coupling that with a medication such as the Diovan, which is also used to help lower blood pressure.

And no, it shouldn't raise blood sugar, in theory, but it is always difficult to know how any medication will affect any particular person that takes it, so such a possibility is always there.

Are there any comments or questions?
