YANMD. One of the side effects of hydrochlorothiazide
is high blood sugar. How much of an increase would be typical?

An actual number range (mg/dl for example) or percentage range (x% increase) would be preferred.
If it affects the answer, specifically for someone overweight with prediabetes and hypertension.
Side question: I was told by a doctor that high blood sugar is a side effect of hydrochlorothiazide, and Wikipedia also lists it as one. However, the Mayo Clinic
does not, nor does the NIH
(unless I missed it). Are the doctor and Wikipedia correct in the first place?
