I am looking for more info on the affects of steroidal medication on blood glucose. I currently take a medication called Asmnex and while I don’t see any thing major happening to my BG. I have been looking at my basal rates because they are out of whack when compared to what I eat.
Normally your TDD is suppose to be around 50% basal and 50% bolus, some people are 60/40. Me, I am about 70% basal and 30 percent bolus. I don’t have issues with going low and I am going to start a round of basal testing to make sure everything is good.
The only thing I can think of medication wise would be the fact that Asmnex is a steroid based medication and from what I have read sterodial medication can increase your BG.
Looking forward to hearing from anyone who has had experience with this type of a situation.
