Diabeties with Hep C
Sep 29, 2004

I was on 10mg of Glyburide that worked fine for me. I had to stop do to lack of insurance and money. That was about 8 months ago. I restarted taking it and have been on it for 2 weeks now at 10mg. My sugar level isnt even budging. I was at bridging fibrosis has of 5/02 biopsy. Could worsening of liver damage cause this? Also are there any specific diabetes drugs better for the liver then others?

Response from Dr. McGovern

There is an epidemiologic link between hepatitis C and diabetes. However, I don't think that is the explanation for your worsening diabetes control. I would discuss this problem with your general practitioner since you were off medications for some time. Dr. McGovern
