I"m coming up on 3 1/2 yrs post liver tx. I initially took 5mg of Prednisone daliy until last summer when I was "allowed" to taper off. Initially, I also took 6 mg twice daily but was reduced over time to only 1 mg twice daily about a year ago.
Ever since my TX my BP and blood sugar (glucose) have been elevated. I take meds for the BP. But my blood glucose runs about 100 to 106. Above normal of 99 but not high enough to be diabetic.
We know that Prograf can cause both high BP and diabetes. But I'm only taking 2 mg per day now. Is that enough to cause these problems?
