I have a bad cold he called it asthmatic bronchitis and gave me steroids. I remember the last time my blood sugars jumped into the 300 plus range, he said to double my metformin but is there anything else I can do to help it not spike?

I hope that this isn't coming in too late to be of some use, add some ginger to your daily diet or supplement routine. Ginger is amazing at helping the body to push viral nuisances away!! I swear by it!!

Steroids spike your blood sugars. Its a fact. Not much to do except not panic when your BS goes up for several days while taking steroids. Give yourself a week after finishing taking the steroids and you will go back to normal. Lots of hot tea and cold water to keep hydrated.
