Yes I did face it too. While I was on strong steroids in the hospital prior to my surgery, I did suffer from steroid infected blood sugar, which crossed 300. I was constantly being monitored 5 times a day and was being given insulin shots. Generally, it comes back to normal level, once you are off steroids. At least it happened with me. That is the reason, why people who are on steroids are advised to regularly monitor their glucose level. Cheer up, nothing to worry. Can you believe that my sugar level used to go up and down same day.
