I take prednisone 40mg daily for asthma flair up. I took my blood sugar 20-30 min after eating cookies and popcorn it was 208. Should I worry?

I take prednisone 40mg daily for asthma flair up. I took my blood sugar 20-30 min after eating cookies and popcorn it was 208. Should I worry?

High Blood Sugar: Worry is not a productive emotion. But 208 is a very high blood sugar. Prednisone definitely will cause elevations of blood sugar, but you need to be evaluated. Having your height and weight would be useful also to estimate your diabetes risk. I would eliminate all sweets and recheck blood sugar. Don't forget to use exercise to lower blood sugar when your breathing is better. ...Read more

Since just after eating last night (a korma)I have had what feels like popcorn stuck in the back of my mouth/throat. Nothing helps. What can it be?

Cud b a minor injury: Some sharp ingredients in food cud injur the soft palate and back of throat while swallowing. It would feel like something is stuck there. But it should heal in 1-3 days.
Other guess would be an allergic rxn to something in food. If no pain and just constricted feeling in the throat is there, you should be fine. Go for an exam if feelin persists. ...Read more

After eating salty foods like chips or popcorn my lips, tongue and throat swell up. Sometimes hard to breath. What could I be allergic to? Is it bad?

It May be Serious: You need to stop eating these foods and see an allergist for an evaluation. You may be very allergic to something, either the food itself or possibly a preservative. Any time you have swelling and difficulty breathing it could be very serious and if an allergy could lead to a potentially fatal reaction. You should have Benadryl (diphenhydramine) with you at all times and take it right away if you get swelling. ...Read more
