Read where you have these two symptoms. Prednisone can raise your blood sugar levels and those two symptoms...frequent urination and thirst and prime symptoms of diabetes. Go have you blood glucose tested. Prednisone plays havoc with my blood pressure and it wasn't until a cardiologist placed me on water pills that my pressure, even on three BP medications, returned within normal limits.
