I now take 10mg of predisone but was prescribed in January 2005 at 60mg for treatment of Temporal Arteritis. After one the inflamation cleared up and I was weaning down I had a blood sugar reaction that caused my sugar level to go from normal to almost 900. I was not diagnosed as diabetic before but was prescribed diabetes meds until now. My sugar remains normal and I have no side affects that are noted from the predisone or any flare up from the T A.
