I haven't been on in a long time, but I used to come around her a lot for the great support. About two years ago in Summer I developed necrotizing pnemonia, and was in the hospital 2-3 times. It took about 4-6 months for me to recover.
Anyways, in the middle of this I was diagnosed with severe high blood sugars (over 500 for a week), and they could have admitted me for that. But they actually sent me home to see my GP. So I was on high doses on insulin for about 6 months.
Now I've had this bad sinus infection for 3 months, with asthma, on 40 mg of pred. multiple inhalers and nebs. But I had to go back on the insulin because my blood sugar was again over 500.
It's much better now- in the normal range. But I was reaching out and wondering if anyone else here with asthma and taking the steroids has dealth with this?
I've needed large doses of steroids for a long time, so it's not really suprising, but you never really expect to be the one to have a complication like that.
