I'm using Prednisone to treat my rheumatoid arthritis. I'm currently on the 8th day of 30mg. The dosage will be increased gradually until it reaches 50mg. However, since I've been taking Prednisone, I have been going to the bathroom very frequently. I have urge to urinate for like every half an hour. I didn't notice this urination problem before. I've read that if you have been on a high dose of prednisone for a long time it can induce diabetes, and the diabetes would make you urinate more frequently. Is this true? My doctor didn't say anything about it, but I'm really worried. I don't feel thirsty, just having some cravings for salty foods and mild headaches. But I've heard it's normal when you're taking Prednisone. Also, I don't have family history of diabetes. Is it normal to urinate more often when taking Prednisone or it's because of the diabetes I acquired due to this drug?
