My new doctor says I was on prednisine so much for asthma that my lungs are prednisone dependent. So, I am on huge doses of prednisone as of today. He will work me down over months and try to wean the need for prenisone. Meanwhile, my sugars will go up he says. Anyone know how to balance the prednisine and the blood sugar. This really scares me. I am just getting the sugar range to stay around 90 by watching carbs. Any help is appreciated. Thanks:)

I don't know anything more than to watch what you eat.  Try cutting way down on carbs and follow the eating plan we've talked about here.  Since carbs drive the blood sugar higher, many of us stay away from bread, potatoes (a very big culprit), white rice, anything with sugar or flour, most root vegetables.
