In brief: Low sugar, low carb

Addisions is a disease of cortisol or stress and fluid balance hormones.
If you are on synthetic cortisone, like prednisone, you will have a negative impact on Insulin the storage hormone of sugar/carbs/starches. This 'feedback' is regulated by the pituitary, the master gland in your body. So, you can balance this 'teeter totter, by controlling/minimizing foods which create a need for insulin.
