@mollyb1968 and JK @contentandwell I’ve been diabetic for 44 years. I had a pancreas transplant 13 years ago and it helped reverse, stabilize and slow down some of the complications I had. Four years ago I had pneumonia and was prescribed prednisone (a steroid) for it. During that time my blood sugars ran 300-500. Blood sugar seems to NOT like prednisone or other steroids! The PCP &/or endocrinologist should consider other alternatives. In regards to complications of diabetes, one of mine is CKD. I recently saw my endocrinologist and we were considering changes in my meds. She said “you can’t take metformin because of your CKD”. Just mentioning this because a lot of diabetics also have CKD. Neither of you said that you are diabetic but since we’re talking about blood sugar and one mention of insulin I guess I just assumed.

@cehunt57 I am mildly diabetic – no meds, except when I had to take prednisone. I do take prednisone daily now (post-transplant) but a small dose and my blood sugars are still fine.
