Get your GI to write a script for you to have a one-on-one class with a registered dietician or certified nutritionist. You need someone with expertise in fiber content, carbs and other aspects of your diet... Plus you are juggling the predizone which throws your sugars all out of whack, too.
My daughter has Crohns and when it's driving her nuts she goes on a baby food diet... The low residue seems to give her GI tract a rest. She has also gone on a kind of liquid diet of just a "Boost" type meal replacement. If I were you I'd fight like crazy to get weaned off that prednizone as soon as possible. That stuff is bad news in the long haul. Hard on your diabetes, bad for your bones. In my humble opinion I would talk to the doc about a dose lowering schedule as soon as possible. I'm not a doctor, but my daughter has survived Crohns for over 20 years without corticosteroids. We knew early on not to get on that roller coaster. You may want to try other alternatives. You have a rough time with all that's going on. I'll be sending good thoughts and prayers your way.

~Please remember that 50% of all doctors graduated in the bottom half of their class!
Yours may be one of them...
