Please read Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics Linked to Diabetes on Hormones Matter.


And here is the source article, “Fluoroquinolone antibiotics and type 2 diabetes mellitus” – http://www.medical-hypotheses.com/article/S0306-9877(14)00217-5/fulltext

The thought that fluoroquinolones cause cellular damage and magnesium depletion to the point that they increase the risk of type 2 diabetes is frightening, for sure.  There is quite a bit of evidence that dietary adjustments can influence type 2 diabetes significantly though.  So, that’s a reason for some hope.

The role of magnesium depletion in FQ toxicity described in “Fluoroquinolone antibiotics and type 2 diabetes mellitus” helps to explain why magnesium is the supplement that seems to help floxies almost across the board.  Magnesium is necessary for hundreds of enzymatic reactions.

A hopeful thing about the article, “Fluoroquinolone antibiotics and type 2 diabetes mellitus” is that it is a huge help in building a case against the makers of fluoroquinolones.

Smart, resourceful, intelligent people are working on this.  Change will happen.  It will.  It must.

    FQ and Diabetes – has anyone had any personal experience of this? Several months ago I was notified of raised blood sugar levels, and have more recently been experiencing some symptoms recently which could be general flox or specific diabetic related, tingling limbs dryness/thirst, fatigue. Needless to say I am getting this followed up pretty soon, but any thoughts from others would be helpful.

    Gotta love the FQ’s!
