How steroids affect blood sugar

Recently I have had patients that I put on a steroids due to heel pain other types of problems in their body.  Sometimes I find that the steroids such as Medrol Dosepak can greatly increased blood sugar. Many patients can be concerned about this but this is a short-term increasing the blood sugar due to the steroid. At times you to adjust insulin dose or dose of medication for a period of time to allow for the blood sugar to remain under control.
