Sorry to jump in here but my sugars went up while on pred to 155. I was having blood work done monthly for my kidneys so it was checked each month. My Dr. had me cut out refined carbs such as bread, cereals, chips, juice and pasta. I could still eat starchy veggies like corn and potatoes but in moderation.
I went to the Diabetes board here and they were very helpful...........I also ate alot of greek yogurt, eggs and cheese.
Since coming down off pred my sugars are normal.
See if you can get monthly blood tests or you can get one of those home testers to check yourself.
Being on a low sugar, low salt, low carb diet was not fun at all!
Beth, 33 ~ hoping to taper pred successfully, wish me luck!
