Just got diagnosed with Type 2 after 8 weeks of steroids. Errrrgh
Your diabetes may not be permanent. Strong corticosteroids such as prednisone often drive the blood sugar up into the diabetic range. And it may well go back down again once you can get off the steroids and on to a maintenance Crohn's medication.
