Angioedema: There can be many reasons for the swelling you describe ranging from an allergic reaction to food or medicine; it may be due to an autoimmune release of histamine; or it may be due to an inflammatory mediator called bradykinin. It's important to know the underlying cause as it will change treatment. How long has it been there? has it happened before? Do you have hives? Have you tried any meds?

Possibly : High hba1c indicates possible diabetes, depending upon how high. And ferritin is a lab for your iron storage. It's also an "acute phase reactant" meaning that it can be increased in patients who have any inflammation going on in the body. I would definitely follow up with your doc for more eval.

Poison ivy sucks: I would follow your docs instructions. Poison ivy can be pesky to treat and the oils that cause reaction tend to spread to other parts of the body. 2 weeks prednisone shouldn't cause any long term complications in the grand picture of things, as long as it isn't a regular thing.
