i was just wondering what side effects other people have from long term use of side effects. although i'm not actually diabetic (yet) my blood sugars have become unstable over the past 18 months ~ down as low as 2.3 and once upto 19.6, though more usual highs are at the top end of 'normal' range.
the main side effect that i'm having to deal with (other than weight gain) is the development of cataracts. they were diagnosed last autumn but are getting worse quite quickly. have others here developed cataracts? have any of you had them removed? if so, what was it like and how long did it take for you to adapt after the op? also, how bad were they before you had the op? i've not yet met anyone who's developed cataracts from long term pred use so would be interested to hear from others here.
