    Hi, I take Methamzole and also have diabetes. Although the drug really has a pretty significant side effect profile, in the end I feel that every drug has some kind of side effects. From the consultation I did with my doctor, I realized that most of the side effects happen very infrequently, and in addition, my doctor made sure that I do periodic blood tests to make sure that everything is fine with my body. What is important and really helped me a lot and I recommend that you keep it on the menu. I didn't realize how important nutrition is in both diabetes and hyperthyroidism. At first I underestimated it but then when I started eating well I saw a significant change in both my feeling and my body. What side effects are you worried about? I recommend going to your doctor so that he can explain more about them and the chance that they will happen.
