I noticed your post on the diabetes forum and my sugars are elevated b/c of the prednisone too and the Doc has me doing low carb/sugar diet in addition to low salt (fun times).
Have you been able to get off the prednisone? If so, did the diabetes go away?
my sugars were:
Nov - 104
Dec - 113
Jan - 155
these were all morning tests and I don't know what I had before them, I think I had a lot of fruit juice right before (I think I started drinking it an hour before and up until I got out of my car at the Doc's office) the last one (so I could go pee again for the urine test I have to do at the labs on my way into work). I usually (well not anymore) would drink fortified cran/rasp juice each morning at least 4 to 8 oz. added to water.
hope you are doing well.
