good afternoon, everyone. I have registered to this forum in the hope that someone with expertise can explain diabetes to me. Up until yesterday afternoon, I wasn't diabetic, and am not sure whether I really am. I have autoimmune vasculitis (specifically Churg- strauss) and as such am on cyclophosphamide and industrial strength prednisolone. During a regular in patient visit yesterday there was concern at my blood sugar levels and I came away with a prescription for 40 gliclazide a day. Does this mean I have become diabetic, or is this likely to be yet another side effect of the primary medication/condition that will possibly disappear when the AV is under control?
