I am 52 year old male. i was advised to take Omnacortil 40 for about a weeks time during may 2012 for the pain related issue in the bone. this boosted my blood sugger level to 165 (fasting) and 192 (after food). this has dropped down to 102 (fasting) and 134(after food) and HBA1c level 6.3 as on today, in a span of year time.
Could any body advise me how long will it take to come to normal level.

Hi Office....,
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
The omnacortil is a steroid called prednisolone. Steroids have the side effect of causing hyperglycemia that is a diabetes like state. This is a temporary state when one is on short courses steroid treatment.
The effect is short lived and there is mostly full recovery of the sugar control mechanisms within a week.
So you have already recovered from it and need not worry further in that regard.
The values you have provided of the follow up are also normal.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!
