Congratulations snowygirl that is fantastic news about your wedding.

Pred gave you diabetes??? :S I am lucky that I only take as and when I need it (twice in 2 years). Now you have diabetes, what do you do for medication as I have noticed alot of inhalers and possibly the montelukast etc say dont take if diabetic??


hi snowygirl and congratulations on your marriage :) good to hear you have a fab healthcare team, it makes all the difference! Bummer about the diabetes, though its not uncommon in long term pred users, Im sick of them keep testing me LOL, thankfully I havent developed it. I hope your stint free of hospital continues :)
