Like "when I was on steriods for my lupus I also had induced diabetes, and yes it went away as soon as i stopped the steriods. Now that I am definitely diabetic I take metformin 500mg twice a day, had an awful time getting used to spending all my time in bathroom, after dr. added new drug Januvia it balanced out the metformin effects. Today all is well. Metformin is very well known for causing all kinds of problems. Please talk to your Dr. as soon as possible about the serious effects you are having."
