Quick question... i'm type 2 diabetic and am diet controlled O:) . I'm also being treated for cervical radiculopathy :''( via a short course of steroids and the usual cocktail of meds. My blood sugars (prior to the steroids) have been great, my last HBA1c was 6.3. My NS said nothing about a steroids raising my blood sugars... and stumbled onto this likelihood here on the site. Sooooo i thought better check my levels, which i don't do regularly given my typically excellent control. So just tested and I'm 19.9!! My highesst level EVER. I'll be finishing the steroids tomorrow... so don't know if i should be running out the door 8} to get insulin treatment??? I've never been treated via tablets or injections so I've no way at home to manage this.. and of course its a sunday (now) and no way of contacting my GP....
Anyone else go through this or have advice to bide me over to Monday morning??? Just worried... between Pain, all these meds, worries about surgery... and now i get to worry about my diabetes too... never ending isn't it!! lol :jawdrop:
