Brief Answer: It has no role in diabetes Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX Zerodol CR is aceclofenac. It is a painkiller and has no role to play in diabetes. This pain-killer will not make you hypo (glycemic - if this is what you meant). It will not bring down sugar. Though pain-killers need to be taken with caution in diabetes as they may affect kidney function. Thus you need to take it only if you have pain. Hope it helps. Let me know if I can assist you further. Dr Vaishalee
