"I had a shot at L4-5 last year. I did end up doubling my basal rate. Same thing with steroidal nasal spray for a sinus infection that wouldn't quit. The trick is keeping a really close eye so you don't wait too long to lower it. Hope it…"

"Oh, dear. I hope you do OK. I had steroids injected into my shoulder capsule a few years back after a (slight/quick) dislocation. (Worst pain of my life, that darn shoulder.) My blood glucose went through the roof. Test, test, test and correct, eh?"
