Type 2 Diabetes with gMG
In June of 2021 I was overwhelmed with the symptoms of the general MG. My jaw hurt when I chewed, my neck would not support itself on my shoulders, my arms could not lift things into the microwave and I was very tired.
An unforeseen side effect
After a month on the medication, I am finally getting back to normal. However, I am a type 2 diabetic and was prescribed prednisone as one of my prescriptions. The prednisone is spiking my blood sugar. I used to have an A1c of 6.6 to 7.0. Now it is 9.1.
In need of suggestions
My doctor has told me to just double up on the metformin (I was taking 500 mg twice a day). This does not seem to be helping my blood sugar. My fasting blood sugar is still in the 180s and I am exercising and watching my carbs. Any suggestions?
