How to beat diabetes on prednisolone?
If you have steroid induced diabetes then this may be for you. The key is to prolong the time between prednisolone dose and largest meal as much as possible. Before I used to take prednisolone with tacrolimus in am and by lunch time the two meds would be really high in my blood. Both meds synergistically spike blood sugar so when I had my heavy meal.at lunch my blood sugar spiked even after taking diabetic meds. So, what I did was take the heavy meal that is lunch for me at a time when the levels of prednisolone and tacrolimus are low in my blood. Prednisolone becomes low after 12 hours you take it so I started taking both tacrolimus and prednisolone at pm and very light meal if any I take at night. Now i don’t need to take any diabetic meds even after lunch. The trick is the two meds tacrolimus and prednisolone are no higher in my blood when I take largest meal. You can give this technique a try. Also, my hunger has lessened.
