[IP] Medications / High BG


In the book "Pumping Insulin" John Walsh specifically mentions that the use
of steroids greatly increases the need for insulin. This means that using
prednisone and cortisone will increase your need for insulin.. While other
medications are not mentioned, I am sure that there are others that cause
varying increased insulin needs. You should talk to your Endo about this.
Go over the medications you take with him. Specifically ask about their
effect on insulin need.
