My physicians and I noticed that after I started on Depo-provera for birth control that my blood sugar levels went sky high and will not come down. i've done some research but have been unable to find out whether or not Depo causes glucose levels to rise. Has anyone found any relevant information on this?

You might want to check out Hystersisters. That website has had several people mention various side effects from Depo I believe. Never have used it so did not really pay too close attention to their discussions. I don't remember if you can search their posts without being a registered member but it is free to join.

God chooses special people to do those jobs Harlan because he knows they can step up to the mark when it matters. Whether it be a child born to parents with severe health issues, disfigurements etc., it's a time to test what you are really made of and to learn valuable lessons from the experiences God gives you in your life time. it's how we cope and the lessons we learn from all lifes experiences that shape and make us who we are. Hopefully we all come out the other end better people. It's called putting your trust in God. lol ☺☺☺

That is not something which I have looked into. When I was with the mother of my sons we used a barrier method to control conception, so this never came up. But since it is a type of progesterone, it could affect ones Blood glucose numbers. There's no specific mention of its effects on a Person with Diabetes, so it may well be one of those individual reactions to the medication.
