My apologies for taking a little while to approve your membership. Your posts wouldn't show up until I did that.

Was his blood sugar very high when diagnosed?

Weeks at very high blood sugar can cause a temporary loss of communication over the spine that usually clears up once the blood sugar is controlled.

And lower blood sugar levels can do the same if there are other problems with the spine. The high blood sugar problem layers over those and makes them worse.

How much does he weigh?

What is his current insulin dose in units and is it once a day or twice?

Prednisone can also induce temporary diabetes and permanent diabetes. He's off that now?

Even if the diabetes is independent of the prednisone, the prednisone will raise his blood sugar.
