I haven't been on here for a while as I have been quietly getting on with managing my pmr and pred reduction with little or no drama.
I am now down at 2.5mg after a little under 2 years and it looks promising that I should be off pred within the year possibly by October if all goes to plan. (dead slow nearly stop)
However, having put on in excess of 10 kilos of weight, despite following a mostly low carb diet (It's the wine that is the stumbling block for me) I thought it would be prudent to get myself a blood glucose monitor.
I have now been monitoring my fasting blood sugars for several days and they are steady at 7.2 mmol/L or 130 mg/dl. (0.2mmol/L or 5mg/dl into the diabetic range).
I have not yet monitored 2hrs. after eating.
My question is. Should I be worried?
Is it worth going to the doctor and starting the whole process off and getting into the system as a possible type 2?
Would I be better to continue to self monitor and see how it goes? Particularly once I get pred free and hopefully start shifting the excess weight?
The only symptom I currently have that may be attributable to blood sugars is tiredness. However this could equally be due to reduced pred and the pmr.
Any comments welcome.
