I have Autoimmune liver disease, and am on 20mg of prednisone a day. I never had a blood sugar problem before the liver problem. Well I finally confirmed my suspicion.
.. I did not take my prednisone last night. . This moning my blood sugar was 75. Normally I am around 120-180 in the am. Needless to say, I got scared as that is low, and I thought I was going to pass out. I have already been to an Endocrinologist, and am waiting for my blood work to come back. We all suspect that I am temporarily drug induced diabetic. I take the pred. at night, and my counts are always high in the am. The liver Dr. is trying to lower my pred. and get me on another type of immune suppresant. I tried one, but was unable to tolerate it.
I wasn't sure what to do this morning when I was @ 75, so I didn't take my Levimir. I didn't want to drop any lower. I tried to call my Dr. but he wasn't in, I got the nurse's voice mail. Did I do the right thing by not taking the levimir?
After breakfast count was 95. I felt shaky on and off during the day.
