Non-Diabetes Medicines That May Lower Blood Sugar

Topic Overview

Some medicines for conditions other than diabetes can lower your blood sugar level. Other medicines can hide the symptoms of low blood sugar. This is a concern when you have diabetes. Make sure every doctor you see knows about all of the medicines, vitamins, or herbal supplements you take. This means anything you take with or without a prescription.
