(Rohini Krishnamurthy/ MEAWW News) — Individuals who take a commonly prescribed anti-inflammatory drug might have a higher risk of diabetes, according to a new study. In just after seven days of treatment, the drug could disturb the body’s handle over blood sugar, says the study.
Anti-inflammatory drugs such as prednisolone, for instance, belong to the class of steroid hormones or Glucocorticoids (GCs) that help people deal with allergy, asthma, arthritis and other inflammatory diseases.
According to the team, the findings can help doctors determine the best GC dose that can balance out treatment benefits for inflammation with potentially negative effects of increased diabetes risk. (…)
