Does anybody know if being on prednisone can have adverse affects on your blood sugar? If so, how much?
I just took my 1 hr glucose test on thursday to check for Gestational diabetes (GD), I was told at first I had passed with great numbers (My OB told me this) and then was called the next day to request I take the 3 hour glucose because I failed the 1 hour miserably (numbers were 190, anything over 139 is high). The lady did say it could be because of my prednisone which is why they wanted me to do the 3 hour to make sure. I felt fine during the 1 hour and only became slightly dizzy and light headed.
Saturday I took the 3 hour and supposedly failed it as well. (fasting: 93, 1hr: 214, 2hr: 179) I won't know for sure if I failed it till tomorrow when my OB looks at my results.
Both my parents believe it's because of the prednisone and they consider those numbers borderline (moms an RN). I'm not convinced probably because I'm not educated enough in the matter. On top of everything else going on with this pregnancy I don't want to have to deal with GD. I'm tired of feeling like crap (literally) all the time!
Anybody know anything about it? lol
