From this study (3 months ago):
Steady decline for four years, but extreme decline over two months leading me in to hospital
From this study (7 months ago):
after taking steroid 12 days ago I was told my blood sugar was 240 in the e.r. I was given glipizide but told not to take it by primary dr. I have been monitoring my blood sugar and its remained above 160 since. I have had averaging test and told I wasn't diabetic 2 yrs ago. I have reacted to medications before such as baclofen with high sugar but wonder if any of my prescription my be causing this?
