Hello I have type ll diabetes. My problems with diabetes didn't start until I was on seroquel its a drug that is suppose to treat bipolar and other psychiatric disorders. When I started taking the drug I had no idea how bad that would effect me until I was diagnosed with diabetes. At first my diabetes was mild treated with pills and diet. Then suddenly I went back to the doctor after just a couple of months and it started getting worse he then put me on shots and kept me on the pills. I'm still suffering from the diabetes that seroquel caused me to have. Since then I've lost most of my eye sight and now I have liver diesease. My advice to everyone is this check all the side effects of your medications and always watch on the new findings of any drugs you are on. If you are on any medication that can cause diabetes contact your doctor and ask him if you can be taken off of it and given another drug. Also keep checking with the FDA to make sure that none of the drugs you are currently taking are on there bad drug list if so contact an attorney that is handling cases against that drug.

I find it very scary the side effects of a lot of these drugs. You ever noticed on these drug commercials, half the commercial is telling you all the bad things that the drug can do to you!

Sure you have migraines, but take this pill for that and you run the risk of failing kidneys and or liver, diahrea and the list goes on! (This is just an example) It's crazy!

I hope you start feeling better. I'm sorry this is happening to you.

That is interesting…I hope you get better. I also take Seroquel and am diabetic, but was diabetic for years before I took it. It helped my lows I used to have . I take it for sleep and general anxiety. It's amazing how different it is for every diabetic…to this day, it helps me a lot, however, I have definitely noticed my numbers rising more and more and more, but that was after I started actually eating supper every night for the last year…interesting stuff…ANNE
