When I was first diagnosed with diabetes I had the flu, was having problems with my asthma, and was taking large doses of prednisone.  What are the chances that the flu, the prednisone, or a combination of both caused me to develop diabetes?

Prednisone has been recognized as a diabetes inducing agent for several years
now. The flu may have had some bearing, since some of the virii that lead to
Type 1 have such symptoms, but that's a bit iffy.
