desiree942 Posted July 19, 2006 Report Share Posted July 19, 2006 Last week I had some blood work done and my dr. called me and said my glucose was 189 and we need to make sure I haven't become diabetic! Last time we did blood work it was 85. I am in normal weight range and on a very boring gluten free diet, few refined carbs. We are going to do a fasting glucose test later this week but now I am reading that florinef can aggrevate or unmask latent diabetes. I have been on .3 mg florinef daily + Postassium 20MEQ and after seeing Dr. Grubb last month we discussed the need to lower the florinef dose after I get stable on something else. (I am trying cymbalta) Florinef has helped the most in my treatment but he told me it is NOT a life long drug and he prefers a lower dose (.2 mg. max).Also, my major complaint with the POTS symptoms has been weak legs, Dr. Grubb said low postassium, even low but normal range was a problem when taking florinef. This week my potassium was low so my dr. doubled my potassium and within 24hrs. I noticed some improvement in the leg weakness. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
