Hi guys. Am on my first week of 14mgs pred after7wks of 15mgs so am cautiously looking out for signs of withdrawal/return of symptoms. My doc insisted on me going down to 12.5 after 4wks but I didn't fare too well on that so here's hoping this is gonna be better. My biggest concern is the last two was or so I have been very very thirsty and drinking loads. Am staying with my step mother who has type 1 diabetes (has to inject insulin several times a day) so she tested my sugar levels and they were 9.2. Every test I have ever had has been 5 or below. This I guess is steroid induced, will it improve as the steroids are reduced and should it be treated now. Am away from home at moment so will inform doc on return. Should I be worried or is it just one of those things to get on with while dealing with pmr. At least it explains some of my eye symptoms that had me thinking GCA, even tho I didn't have real head pains just niggles. Thanks for listening and all the best to you all, take care cc
Ps I don't eat a lot of carbs or sugary food.
