Re: [IP] Extreme Highs from Cortizone? (trigger thumb)

Hi Sammi

The reason your BGs are high is because steroids cause insulin resistance. 
I've had to as much as double my basals when I've had a cortisone shot. It's 
going to last a few days, but proabably less than a week. Up your basals, and 
add about 20 percent or so to your boluses. Test frequently after a couple of 
days and be careful you don't crash.
