Carvedilol and Diabetes

Does the blood pressure medicine Carvedilol make the blood sugar run high

I am suspicious of any med whose name ends in -lol.  My husband was being treated for HBP with Atenolol and another drug.  His blood sugar shot up to the sky.

I was being treated with Metoprolol for CHF; it ruined my lungs and I am now suffering with COPD as well as diabetes.

The doctors cover themselves with some self-serving statement that the "benefits outweigh the negatives".  What happened to the Hippocratic Oath to first do no harm?
