Pred Forte eye drops and glucose intolerance
USA (United States of America)
I have Fuchs endothelial dystrophy and just recently had corneal repair surgery. I am using Pred Forte in my surgery eye, which started at q2h and then has been gradually reduced down to three times a day.
I have noted that my glucose level has increased. It used to be around 90 to 100, now in the mornings it is 122-130. Is it possible that it could be the Pred Forte.
I have actually gone on a diet in the past few weeks and my glucose reading is still elevated.
Could it be the Pred Forte?
Thanks, that's interesting. the instructions on my eye drops say hold your index finger to your eye duct for 2 minutes. Maybe 5 minutes will reduce the BG impact.I have started using eye drops yesterday and found my Blood Glucose have risen significantly today. I have needed to increase my insulin doses (I have T1 Diabetes). Pred Forte has been prescribed 4 x per day for 3 days prior to cataract surgery. (Then for 3 days after).
Thank you. I have type 2. Diagnosed about a year ago. No meds been controlling with diet. Had cornea transplants 15+ years ago. Pred forte 1x a day each eye. The last few months I was unable to get my drops because of cost. I reduced my dosage to 1x every 3 days. Recently I was able to afford the drops. Back to 1x a day. My morning glucose levels went up to 180-220 instead of 130 - 160. I suspect the drops. I will stop them for a week to see if levels change.
