I highly doubt it. I have never had any problems.

I think it depends on the amount you have to use. For example I have psoriasis and it covers most of my body :(
I use a steroid ointment and a cream and because I have to use it twice a day and It covers so much of my body it does tend to affect my blood sugars.
I am very hopeful that I will soon get to take a biological medicine. Not sure how that is going to work with my diabetes though.
