Pain relievers are meant to lower your pain
level — not your blood sugar, right? But
research shows one particular pain reliever
might lower some patients' blood sugar to
unsafe levels. I'm Rachelle Grossman with
your latest health news. A new study found
that people who used the pain reliever tramadol
were more likely to be admitted to the hospital
for low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia, than
people who took codeine, another painkiller.
The study authors called for further research
and note that older patients and those who
have just started tramadol may have a higher
risk. Hypoglycemia can be life threatening,
so talk to your doctor about any concerns.
