Hi Lion. I have steroid induced diabetes. My sugars were in a flux and I was placed on 30mg Actos. My rheumy placed me on methotrexate and within a few months, my sugars stabilized although I still have to take the Actos. Later my pred was up to 30mg and my rheumy added Imuran. Bottom line: methotrexate stabilized my glucose and my blood pressure. I really am sorry you're so sick. I'm sending you lots of positive energy and hugs!!
