have also been called "glucocorticoids" because of their effects on glucose metabolism
.Increases in blood glucose are common among people taking any steroids.
Steroids cause the liver
to release too much glucose and cause the body to develop insulin-resistance, resulting in high blood sugar levels.
People with diabetes
receiving steroid treatment should be informed that their blood glucose will increase while they are on the steroid. Doctors should help patients determine what adjustments are needed to keep blood glucose levels within the target range.
Treatment with faster acting diabetic medication like insulin or some other sulfonylurea
can be prescribed or increased in dose,if already taking,and it should be able to help you.
Since steroid treatments are generally prescribed for a short duration and so nothing much should be worried.Blood glucose levels tend to return to pre treatment levels within few days of stoppage of steroids.
You can discuss about this with your doctor.
