Brief Answer:
Yes, Duphaston can cause reduced blood glucose lev

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query,

It is not surprising to experience decreased blood glucose levels with Duphaston. This is a drug that generally increases sensitivity of cells to insulin. Insulin causes a reduction in blood glucose levels. Increased sensitivity of cells to insulin by Duphaston thus reduces blood glucose levels. It is but normal to experience this therefore.

Kind regards,

Dr Bain
