I had about 7 good years on Simponi then it started 'wearing off'. My rheumie has started me on a relatively new biologic called Cosentyx. (She said she's had quite a bit of success with it.)
I have also been diet-controlled border-line diabetic for over 10 years. (i.e. no meds).
At the same time as I've been starting on Cosentyx, I've had a heavy chest cold (2 weeks so far) that is now getting better.
My question is this....I do test my blood glucose levels intermittently with a home test unit, and just this week, my BG levels have soared (around 10 mmol/L when usually 5 to 7 over the day). I would put this down to the illness, but also wondered if anyone else using Cosentyx has had this experience. I haven't been able to find any information from the company leaflets.
Thanks, Aless (in Australia)
