As I mentioned in another thread, I found out that the rash I developed was an allergic reaction to a medication and so the doctor gave me a steroid shot yesterday. He said it was a relatively low dose but agreed my blood sugar would be raised for a couple days. So far, high but not crazy high. I woke up at 179 (very high for me) and was 183 before breakfast. I'm correcting of course.
I've never done a temporary basal rate, and thought that might be useful for a day or two. I realized I have no idea what percentage would be reasonable. I can start very conservative and do trial and error, but that will take awhile. Anyone have any ideas a reasonable percentage for steroids (or any temporary problem)? Thanks!
