Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Steroid induced diabetes is common in prolonged use, quitting steroids slowly after tapering, losing weight and modifying diet lifestyle helps and if glycemic status is still not controlled then medications are needed. Consult an endocrinologist and let them help.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
