It's also my understanding that cortisone, over time, can cause
complications with the eyes and is sometimes "contraindicated" for
diabetics because of this.

Naprisin (sp?), which was mentioned, caused my BGs to react unpredictably
for the several weeks I tried it, even though it was not supposed to affect
me this way. I switched to an alternate (forgot the name), and the BGs were
not bouncing around. Probably a good example of YMMV - Your Mileage May Vary.
