Steroids like prednisone do indeed increase blood sugar.  They are indicated for exacerbations of COPD but not for daily therapy on a chronic basis

As the dr said, steroids do tend to raise blood sugar levels.  I would strongly advise that you be more careful with your diet when you are on steroids in the future.

Feel better.
