I am undergoing treatment for multiple myeloma. Prescribed Dexa steroids 20 mg once a week. On the day of taking Dexa my sugar level rises to about 365. After  2/3 days it comes to normal 100. 

Shall I take any precautions or ignore it?

    I would call my Dr as soon as possible and let him know what the meds are doing to you. Record all your readings. 325 is crazy high!

    I think this is expected but I'm not sure what should be done about it, have to consult with your doctors.  If it's once a week, they may just let it go.  I guess there are other things that could be done, but it's way above my grade level to even speculate.
