Does Anyone Have A High Blood Sugar When Takes A Dexametason? Also My Father Takes A Insulin Mixtard

I take dexamethasone before each treatment and after . I am on a rest until the 5th of December. They say I am responding well to treatment. I received flowers from a college and high-school friend. It was a wonderful gesture. Made my day.

After 2 treatments my doctor stopped my Dex. I was taking it Friday and Saturday after treatment on Thursday. How long have some of you been taking Dex?

Any steroid will cause high blood sugar. Dexamethasone is a steroid. Address this with his doctor. I experience high blood sugars. Mine returns to normal range after 3 days. Of course, I am on medication not insulin. Call his primary care doctor or oncologist for advice.
