videx and diabeters

Jan 16, 2006

Doctor I am a diabetic and I am on videx now for nearly 3 years. My diabetes is getting worst. Is videx the reason?? thank

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

I don't think that ddI (Videx) is responsible for the worsening of your diabetes. However, unless you're only taking ddI monotherapy, it's possible that some of your other drugs (especially some of the older protease inhibitors) may be contributing. BY
