Torsemide (also known as Demadex) can elevate blood sugar levels. If people with diabetes take this medicine, they will need to closely monitor their blood sugar and talk with the doctor about adjusting their dose of oral diabetes medications or insulin. Torsemide is a diuretic (also known as a "water pill") that is sometimes used to treat high blood pressure.
