A:   Hello
Thanks for your query on Ask The Doctor

Yes, pill Cerelle can affect the blood sugar levels. Studies show that Progesterone pill should be prescribed with caution to the patients having diabetes. Pill cerelle may cause impaired blood glucose control or fluctuations in the blood glucose levels.

Patients with history of gestational diabetes are having more risk of developing chronic diabetes after consuming Progesterone only pill (POP) that is Cerelle.
Your doctor should know that person is having diabetes or not before prescribing Cerelle.
Please consult your doctor and request him/her to review the prescription. Your doctor may prefer continuing POP by adding anti diabetic medicines or increasing dose.

Your regular doctor only can decide the best for you.
Wish you a good health
