Peg + Riba High sugar and High BP
Aug 6, 2005

I'm a 54 year old male 5 weeks into Peg and Riba. I'm grateful that the sides relent by work on Mondays. My blood pressure is high and sugar levels going higher each week. Any relationship between the HCV treatment and the BP and sugar?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Clearly interferon can make control of diabetes worse. You will definitely want to discuss this with your physician as soon as you can.
