I was diagnosed diabetic about 15 months ago. I had been on prednisone long term, about 18 months total. I have now been off the prednisone for about 5 or 6 weeks. I had expected the diabetes to go away when I quit the prednisone. I had been averaging morning readings of 94. When I went off the prednisone my readings are now higher, averaging about 105. I am and have been on 500 mg. Metformin twice a day. No change in eating. My docs explanation was age, 65. Seems very strange to me that the rise coincided with the lack of prednisone. My a1c is 5.5, that was about three weeks after quitting prednisone.
