I live with both type 2 diabetes and bipolar disorder. Has anyone else noticed that the newer bipolar meds (abilify, seroquel, etc…) make your blood sugars elevated? When I asked my psych doc about it, she said it was because most bipolar folks are overweight because of how the meds affect them. I disagree because the commercials talk of how folks with no previous blood sugar problems should be checked after starting the bipolar med. So what I am asking is: Is there a link between mood swings and blood sugars that affect the chemicals in the brain? Please tell me if you think about this as well.
