I am TII, which I developed after being on prednisone for asthma. Am on more of a dose in the winter months. Now it's spring and have been tapering the prednisone, plus watching my diet better. About a month ago started getting hypo epsiodes, so decreased the Levemir- was on 80 daily, now 35. In spite of the hypos my last A1c went from 7.6 to 8.3.
The big problem is I get a bump in my readings after the prednisone dose. It goes up to about 240 around 10 am and doesn't come down to the 100's until about 5 or 6 pm every day. This is no matter what I do- eat or not eat, exercise or not exercise, prandin or no prandin. If I am off course diet wise, it will stay into the 200s into the evening.
Has anyone else been on prednsone and have this happen? Any suggestions?
