On WebMD I found an article on Niacin which does have a side effect on elevating the blood sugar with high doses and usually in the beginning of therapy. This is the web site URL. I don't follow Web MD as my "bible" but there is some good info there as well as some inaccuracies. It is best to discuss this issue with your prescribing Dr.
Good luck!

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

"Be not afraid of going slow; be afraid if standing still" (Chinese Proverb)

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

good question.....wish i knew the answer though..................


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

I take Metformin for blood sugar control. I am also taking Niacin. I heard that Niacin can raise your numbers. Has anybody heard that and if so what can be done about it?
