    Yes, plaquenil can cause low blood sugars. Eat frequent meals with carbs and protein but good carbs with fiber like oatmeal or whole wheat toast with peanut butter. I like the lowered blood sugar effect b/c I have type 2 diabetes but before I got type 2, I had some low sugars with plaquenil for sure. I found some literature that says that plaquenil can lower your blood sugar, but the stuff I found only mentioned reductions of about 5 mg/dl. Has anyone here had problems with blood sugar that was severely low caused by plaquenil? The only other medication I take is levoxyl for hypothyroidism and sometimes ibuprofen. Hydroxychloroquine is used to treat or prevent malaria, a disease caused by parasites that enter the body through the bite of a mosquito. Malaria is common in areas such as Africa, South America.

    Plaquenil is also an antirheumatic medicine and is used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus. This medicine is not effective against all strains of malaria.

    Well, the combination of high sugar levels and SLE is a one two punch to the kidneys. It is very important that you keep your sugar under control. Very hard to control the lupus, but the sugar you have more ability to help with diet and exercise and meds. Taking steroids will play havoc on your sugar levels. An increase in blood sugar is not associated with the use of this drug also. The glucocorticoid Prednisone is known to cause an increase in blood sugar level in addition to other side effects. In view of the above you are advised to consult your treating rheumatologist for the gradual stoppage of Prednisone.
