Flashback Friday – Sweet Surrender

Originally posted DECEMBER 18, 2010

I have not been feeling my best for the past three or four weeks. Not much energy. I went to see my main pulmonologist today who is also my primary care physician for my routine follow up. While going over stuff I mentioned that for the past three weeks I have been getting up to go to the bathroom at night. Then came a bunch of questions about symptoms, all of which I am having.Turns out he thinks it might be diabetes. I have been on prednisone for almost five years, and prednisone does cause diabetes, so there is reason to be fearful. So I had blood and urine tests and the preliminary blood result do show elevated glucose levels. Won’t have all the test results until Monday.

Have I mentioned that I hate prednisone?

UPDATE: Since this post, I was suspected of being pre diabetic, but thankfully with a change in diet I had normal blood readings for years
