Hi. Been a while. Busy with life and stuff and reducing our old friend, the steroids.
It’s been 7 years since my first diagnosis of PMR. Also possible GCA so have been on steroids as high as 60mgs but never managed lower than 6mgs. Tried methotrexate combo but not successful on that. Now on 12mgs and slowly reducing.
I have now been diagnosed as being glucose intolerant due to long term steroids. As I already follow a careful diet GP has advised I take Metformin to help lower my glucose levels. And yes. Increase exercise as much as my PMR body will permit.
Anybody else has had this additional health condition added to the mix?
Enjoy the sunshine this weekend 😘
