Don't worry too much. If you are on antibiotics and prednisone then presumably you're sick. That in itself will raise your blood sugar. However, the main problem is the prednisone. That will drive your blood sugar crazy. It's so devastating to blood sugar levels that type 2 diabetes is a side effect of long term use. I would guess that once you stop that you will re-gain control.
