Pre-diabetes, likely due to long-term steroid use: Anyone else?
I was dismayed yesterday at a doctor’s visit, that my A1C was now is the “pre-diabetes” range. I knew this was a possible side effect from long term steroid use, but still it was a shocker. I’ve immediately put myself on a diabetes eating plan – and continue to walk 3 miles a day. My physician says this will resolve itself when I’m off prednisone, but on my super-slow taper, that’s about 3 more years. Wondering if anyone has had a similar experience – or success at lowering A1C on prednisone. Thank you.
