Expert: Time to break the beta blocker habit?
Date:11/11/2012

(COLUMBUS, Ohio) November 2012 - First developed in the 1950s, beta blockers have been a mainstay in medicine for decades, used to treat everything from heart disease to stage fright to glaucoma. But some older classes of beta blockers are causing new concerns.

"Studies show that older beta blockers can increase a patient's risk of diabetes by more than 25 percent," said Dr. Ragavendra Baliga, a cardiologist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. "So, I am actually switching many of my patients to a 'newer' beta-blocker, which is less likely to cause diabetes while proving just as effective in treating heart failure and other conditions," he said.

Baliga recently published an editorial on the topic in Heart Failure Clinics of North America, in which he suggests that perhaps it's time to break tradition of long-term use of some beta-blockers.
