Answer

Yes. Studies show that high-dose birth control pills can increase blood sugar levels in women with diabetes, but low-dose birth control pills had smaller effects on blood sugar. If you start taking a new birth control pill, monitor your blood sugar closely to record any changes. Having your A1c checked after three months will also show changes in blood sugar levels. If changes occur, your doctor will discuss options to get your levels back under control.
