I have been on Prednisolone for about two and a half years for pmr. I started on 15 mg . Have had a few ups and downs but am now slowly reducing successfully it seems. Down to 4 mg at present.
Shocked to receive a letter from GP referring me to a life style course as blood sugar level is 43 Mmol. I hadn’t realised that steroids could interfere with insulin levels to such an extent. Is there any point in going on a lifestyle course when on steroids? I am 82 , put on about 6 lbs . I am not on any other medication .I am also Coeliac .
Thank you for any advice .
