Steroid diabetes must be distinguished from stress hyperglycemia , hyperglycemia due to excessive intravenous glucose, or new-onset diabetes of another type. Because it is not unusual for steroid treatment to precipitate type 1 or type 2 diabetes in a person who is already in the process of developing it, it is not always possible to determine whether apparent steroid diabetes will be permanent or will go away when the steroids are finished. More commonly undiagnosed cases of type 2 diabetes are brought to clinical attention with corticosteroid treatment because subclinical hyperglycemia worsens and becomes symptomatic. Generally, steroid diabetes without preexisting type 2 diabetes will resolve upon termination of corticosteroid administration.
Riddle me this? How do two doctors send a diabetic home with steriods for an undisclosed condtion? And never did they mention and changes I might need to be aware of, being a diabetic. Not to menation, the fact that they couldn’t figure out or even consider psorisis now that I have learned more about it, it’s pretty common. I’m not a doctor and I wasn’t aware of this disease. What I have become aware of, is if you catch it early you can take steps to minimize the breakout hence pain. I’m considering taking further action.
Ventolin has absolutely no effect on me in any of the “generic forms”. I am a type 2 diebetic who has not needed a metformin pill since 2012…yes diet and regular exercise is key. I have struggled with multiple sinus infections and of late a case of Pneumonia, of which I was sent home told to “take a day off, the bug will pass” (Thank You North Bay General hospital Ontario Canada). I have had a problem pretty steady since.
I haven’t smoked in 14 years, no second hand smoke either.
I have a cough, white clear frothy sputum(?) comes up.
Doc wanted to give me Salbutamol (what like 4th time it’s going to work?) but I asked for some Ibproferin and have taken a cough syrup(Robotussin cough control 2 x daily400mg, 1 table spoon) cough is down out working in 32 degree Celsius for a few hrs and able to breath.
I hate taking a cough suppressant, because if it needs to get out….
Not breathing has taken a toll, my exercise program went out the window and finally after 2 weeks of trying to work while having Pneumonia got rechecked and was cleared thru x-ray/bloodwork…cough has persisted and lousy feeling for another 3 weeks.
Any thoughts suggestions much appreciated, and yes occasional short of breath problems since 2014.
