Has anyone had issues with there blood sugars I've had to random glucose draws and the first was 212 and the second was 191. Im wondering if it's the predisone and if anyone else has had these problems. Other than that I feel good for a change.

Prednisone most definitely makes your blood sugar unstable. On high doses, i've been on up to six insulin shots a day! But when I come down, my sugar usually stabilizes, thankfully! You have to be really, really careful. Judy

Hey, when I was on 50 mgs of prednisone I had to get insulin injections every few hours too...212 is so high for blood sugar! you get get a blood glucose meter and insulin to help you regulate the blood sugar. after I started tapering down it definitely got more manageable, I am on 5 mgs now and the side effects are almost negligible, hope this helps!!
