Prednisone raises your blood sugar over time so you should be careful to avoid sweets, especially if you are diabetic. In general, you just want to maintain a healthy, balanced diet. The most important thing is to make sure you are getting plenty of Calcium and Vitamin D (especially if you are a white female). Prednisone interferes with the absorption of these nutrients and over time it can cause osteoporosis. I've also learned recently that it's not a bad idea to supplement your diet with folic acid. I've been taking Prednisone for about 6 months and have begun to taper off the medicine. Overall, I experienced fewer side effects than expected. Though I did experience stomach upset in the beginning and quickly learned to take it with food! Good Luck!
