Test your blood sugar every morning on arising, before you eat or drink anything (even water) and before you walk around a lot. Keep a record. Casual blood sugars taken at all different times before and after eating aren't really too helpful in evaluating things. Unless someone is on insulin, one fasting sugar a day is usually enough.
Yes, steroids do tend to elevate blood sugar and can induce type 2 diabetes in some people. Don't panic about
it, but try limiting your simple carbs and exercising and see if that helps the glucose levels.
Definitely talk to your doctor about
these concerns. I did develop type 2 on steroids, but everything has returned to normal now that I'm off. I still observe the diet fairly well and try to be sure I get exercise. I never had to take any medication for it even while I was still on steroids.
