Hi Tim Tam. Oh, gee, sorry to hear this. Medicines that raise blood sugar are frequently prescribed for other medical issues but you do have to deal with the resulting high blood sugar. This happens with steroids. They are notorious for raising blood sugar.
The best I can tell you is to increase some physical activity to help counteract the effects of the medication you're taking along with a decent low-card diet.
There are lots more food you CAN eat than you CAN'T as far as raising blood sugar. Most vegetables but not potatoes or other root veggies are good, leafy greens, celery, radishes, cucumbers, asparagus, zucchini, eggplant, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage (shredded cabbage is great sauteed with onions), mushrooms, artichoke hearts, hearts of palm, daikon radish, bell peppers. Nuts, natural peanut butter or other nut butters, cheese, eggs - all good.
I would suggest keeping a food log along with your blood sugar readings taken before you eat and about 2 hours afterward. This will give you insight about what food raises your blood sugar.
Also, see if your doctor can refer you to a nutritionist or endocrinologist. They might be able to give you more help with ideas.
I hope you are staying healthy despite this!
