I go back to the Rhuemy tomorrow morning for my monthly appointment. Tomorrow he is doing a fasting glucose test to test for diabetes. I hope it comes back negative, but I really don't think it will. I will keep ya'll posted

My rheumatologist ordered this on the last time I saw him. Fortunately, it came back normal. I think that for those of us who have dealt with sle for many years, they are testing for the "middle age" stuff. Long term pred use, even low dose, can lead to diabetes, so they are testing to be safe.
