So, I had to have a steroid a few weeks ago to help gain some mobility back from my psoriatic arthritis. My Doctor and I did discuss that my BS would go up but eventually it would come back down over time and she adjusted my meds a bit. Well, at this point I'm really getting worried. My BS has been around the 250/265 range when fasting and around 200 2 hours after eating. I have taken my extra meds she has said was okay to take. I go in this morning for my 3 month check up, thank goodness, and I am going to discuss this with her.
The sad thing is, the steroid shot only help me for about a week and then it just seemed to wear off :( Be glad when I go to the Rheumotologist.
I was doing really good with my BS right before this shot too, so it's really disappointing to see this numbers. And I'm getting my A1C done this morning. Sigh… So much for that going down this quarter.
I'm just bummed, but I know my doctor will come up with something this morning. She's great :)
Thanks for letting me vent, and I'll post again after my appointment this morning.
