Bit of history - I am a type 2 diabetic and was not on insulin until needed preds.
Began on 60mg of preds nearly 16months ago and am not on 17mg. Being treated for GCA / PMR but as a poss prob with right eye developed my 2 consultants from eye hosp and rhumy decided to try 150mg Azaithiaprine and lower pred. Constantly observed by both
However, that said, am on 46units of Insulatrd as BGS get high around lunch to early afternoon.
In addition, my sleep has been really affected this past 3/4 months worse than it was before. In fact am almost a total insomniac. Tried almost everything my research suggested, so now the latest suggestion was the preds are causing this ..
Therefore, thinking and tried this last 2 nights, taking preds and insulin at 8pm instaed of 8am. 1st night , no difference. Last night got more sleep but was up n down to loo like 4 times in 4 hours!!!
I am waiting to talk to my Diabetic Nurse this week but thought others may have experience...
Thanks in advance.
