I am asmatic also - when taking prednisone - my doc up my insulin to
cover the expected high rate - don't forget not only is the steroid the
problem but the asthma is also causing inflammation in the lungs in

should get ahold of your endo or team and get some adjustments for this
time period. hope you're better soon good luck Chris
