Lori – I’m not sure I wanted to know that! Both my doctor and consultant know that I am diabetic and taking prednisone and whilst they know it is impacting my diabetes they have not said it is anything to worry about…… I am keeping a log of my blood/sugar levels 3 times daily and there is a definite pattern that the evening after I have taken the steroids (in the morning) it is high and the next morning it is low – the max it has got to is 19.6 the min 1.8 (and yes I have re-calibrated my monitor – twice now!), my doctor just says see what happens when the dose is reduced, but don’t change the gliclazide dose.
