Never make a woman mad when she's on Pred.
My doctor said he wanted me back on pred if I ever flare. I couldn't believe him. Pred gave me diabetes. "I said I couldn't, I would get out of control." He said I'd be only out of control if I don't control it. I guess that would mean I'd be back on insulin. I finally wean myself off of it and am hoping to get totally off diabetes meds shortly. I've stopped taking it last week so I can have a CT scan done tomorrow. My BG has been ticking upwards. I kind of like the control and freedom that the diabetes meds gives me especially since I don't have any energy to exercise. I can't believe that I miss going to the YMCA.
