Since I have started taking losartan 25mg I have had high blood sugar. I have not changed anything I'm eating or doing. I have been taking it for 6 weeks. I have been diabetic for many years and it has always been controlled. I saw my doctor in February and everything was fine until I saw my heart doctor and he started me on this for my heart failure. It doesn't list this a common side effect but a rare one. Have you heard of this before?

Hello, Sally! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having.

The good news is that there are other medications you can try to improve heart function that are in the same drug class. When I had congestive heart failure about 5 years ago and had bad reactions to many medications, but doctor put me on Atacand. It contains the active ingredient Candesartan.

It is now available as a generic and is known to cause far fewer side effects than the other ARBs.

Its typical side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I watched a YouTube video stating that someone with diabetes has more problems with their blood sugar, on losartan. I don't know why but that's what it said. Hope things get better for u, I've been on this and it's my second day from taking lisinopril and had side effects from it. God bless you and hope you find your health improving!!
