Corticosteroids (Includes Hydrocortisone) ↔ Diabetes
Moderate Potential Hazard, High plausibility
Applies to: Diabetes Mellitus, Abnormal Glucose Tolerance
Corticosteroids can raise blood glucose level by antagonizing the action and suppressing the secretion of insulin, which results in inhibition of peripheral glucose uptake and increased gluconeogenesis. Therapy with corticosteroids should be administered cautiously in patients with diabetes mellitus, glucose intolerance, or a predisposition to hyperglycemia. Patients with diabetes mellitus should be monitored more closely during corticosteroid therapy, and their antidiabetic regimen adjusted accordingly.
However, please seek more info from the doc/pharmacist, hope the info helps?
