I’ve always been told to consider Platelets as the sticky stuff in blood, if that helps. They are different from white cells. My whites are elevated – if the CIDP is being treated with prednisone than your white count and blood sugars will be high.

BTW – find it strange that prednisone makes your blood sugar high but you gain weight rather than lose weight like a person who would be an untreated diabetic. Just a question….
