This past summer of 2006 I had lost 40lbs and look great because I stop taking insulin. I have recently gained all the weight back and I eat right and everything and I still do no take the insulin. ...
Cortisone can raise your sugars extremely high and your doctor should have told you that when he gave you the shot. If your sugars are still high after that long and you can not get them you need to contact your Dr. and /or go to the ER. You may need to be put on an insulin drip. But you NEED to do this A.S.A.P! Sugars that high for a prolonged period of time can very life threatening. Eventually your kidneys will become damaged along with other organs. Please go to the ER and get them down and I would recommend take another shot . No matter how much it hurts. I haven't had another one in 6 years because of it.
Even though your levels have been up due to this shot, why aren't you bringing them down ?

If you are unsure, check with your doctor.
