Will the blood sugar counts return to more normal levels after I get off prednisone late next week?
Yes, an increase occurs. It needs to be treated as your healing will slow down with higher blood sugars. Get the lidocaine patches for the shingles. Hang in there. Write me anytime as I am still dealing with shingles, take prednisone constantly and have left over itching. You will get through this. Take care, Karen
