I have been on MTX for 6 weeks. I got my 2nd blood panel back and my Rhuem says everything looks normal (yay). Except my blood sugar was 172 (yikes)!! I cant remember if i ate sugar before the blood draw. I may have.
The only thing that is different, as in before MTX and after MTX is that I have been slathering myself with glycerin w/ witch hazel.
The skin is an organ, and everything absorbed by the skin will find its way to the bloodstream. So my stupid question for the day is: Since glycerin is a sugar, could it effect my blood sugar? Medically, there are different schools of thought, yes glycerin does effect blood sugar and insulin and no glycerin does not effect blood sugar and insulin. So I am sick of medical conflicts and would like some thoughts from real people :)
