I agree with Harlan. The same type of thing happened when I was getting steroid shots to help my feet. My sugars would go up but I would keep my regular doctor informed so that when the A1C came back higher than we liked we had a good solid reason. good luck.

I too have had to have steroid shots for my psoriatic arthritis and I keep a log of my bs. It was either the steroid or pain meds. And my body just doesn't like the pain meds lol So my dr. adjusts my medicine when I get a shot.

Sure understand what you are talking about. I am taking steroid shots then pills for asthma. Since the question is high BS or don't breath I have no choice. Dr. keeps adjusting my meds. Good luck to all of us

For me the pain beat me and had to take the shots.If you keep righting down what your BS is after the sho you will know how to ajust your meds I would check with your Doc
I hope this helped
