I was on Natpro for a while and went off of it because my blood sugar levels were high and I had no other explanation as to why that would be the case. I also read that progesterone raises blood sugar and is used for hypoglycemia. I was 46 years old at the time. I am currently 47 years old. I have never been overweight in any way and eat decently. Diabetes does run in my family and a few relatives have died from complications of diabetes, so I am very afraid of developing full diabetes. I had a reading of 5.8 at 46 and then 5.5 at 47, so I am looking to reduce my blood sugar levels.
I also suffer from endometriosis. I've been treated many times for endometriosis through laparascopic surgery since the age of 19. I suspect I started suffering from endometriosis since I was 16 years old. I've had issues with cysts as well on and off throughout the years. I also have symptoms of perimenopause, so I suspect that my blood sugar levels are being affected by this as well.
I miss my Natpro as I have been experiencing some pain and the last one had me crying with shooting pains down my leg. I need some relief and would like to go back on Natpro, but I am afraid of the higher blood sugar levels. Is there any truth to blood sugar levels being raised by natural progesterone?
