Risk factors and course of steroid diabetes were investigated in 145 renal-transplant recipients who were given a high-dose steroid regimen. Persistent steroid diabetes developed in 25% of the patients and transient diabetes in another 22%. When antidiabetic therapy was required, insulin had to be given in 50%. The incidence of steroid diabetes correlated with steroid dose, age, body weight, and diabetes heredity but not with abnormal glucose tolerance or with another complication of steroid… Expand
Diabetes mellitus after renal transplantation: as deleterious as non-transplant-associated diabetes?
TLDR
Posttransplant diabetes mellitus is associated with impaired long-term renal allograft survival and function, complications similar to those in non-transplant-associated diabetes may occur in posttransplant Diabetes mellitus, and, hence, as inNon-Transplant- associated diabetes, tight glycemic control may also be warranted in patients with posttrans transplant diabetes. Expand
Insulin resistance after renal transplantation: the effect of steroid dose reduction and withdrawal.
TLDR
Test the hypothesis that tapering of prednisolone the first year after renal transplantation improves insulin sensitivity (IS), and to assess the effect of complete steroid withdrawal (SW) on IS in patients on a cyclosporine-based immunosuppressive regimen. Expand
New-Onset Diabetes Mellitus in Kidney Transplant Recipients Discharged on Steroid-Free Immunosuppression
TLDR
The adoption of steroid-free maintenance immunosuppression at discharge from kidney transplantation in selected patients was associated with reduced odds of developing NODAT within 3 years. Expand
Steroid-Induced Diabetes: Is It Just Unmasking of Type 2 Diabetes?
TLDR
It appears that steroid treatment primarily precipitated diabetes in a group of individuals otherwise less affected by risk factors of diabetes at that point in time, rather than just opportunistically unmasking preexisting diabetes. Expand
Drug selection and the management of corticosteroid-related diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
The effects of glucocorticoid use is associated with the risk of hyperglycemia in patients without known diabetes mellitus and worsened glycemic control in diabetic patients and management includes use of diet and exercise in all patients. Expand
Diabetes mellitus after transplant: relationship to pretransplant glucose metabolism and tacrolimus or cyclosporine A-based therapy
TLDR
Pre- and posttransplant abnormalities of insulin secretion and sensitivity are significant predictors of PTDM. Expand
Glucocorticoid-induced diabetes mellitus in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus treated with high-dose glucocorticoid therapy
TLDR
Old age, family history of DM, higher mean dose of prednisolone before high-dose glucocorticoid therapy and concurrent use of MMF were determined to be factors responsible for increasing the risk of developing GDM. Expand
Endocrine and metabolic abnormalities following kidney transplantation
TLDR
Endocrine and metabolic abnormalities associated with long standing uremia persist after kidney transplantation or arise from the use of immunosuppressive drugs, and glucose metabolism in kidney transplant recipients treated with cyclosporin should be carefully followed. Expand
Detection and Management of Diabetes Mellitus During Glucocorticoid Therapy of Nonendocrine Disease
For the patient who has preexisting type 1 or type 2 diabetes mellitus or the patient with new-onset diabetes during glucocorticoid therapy (steroid diabetes), glucocorticoid therapy of nonendocrineExpand
Post-Transplant Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
Strategies to reduce the metabolic complications of immunosuppressants should be pursued aggressively as this will directly lead to a decrease in long term cardiovascular adverse effects. Expand

Steroid diabetes after renal transplantation--a preliminary report.
TLDR
The incidence of steroid diabetes mellitus was studied retrospectively in 84 renal transplant recipients with grafts which had functioned longer than 3 months and found to correlate with increasing age and body weight and with the number of rejection episodes. Expand
Incidence of serious complications of corticosteroid therapy in respiratory disease. A retrospective survey of patients in the Brompton hospital.
TLDR
The overall incidence of side-effects was similar in both groups, but gastro-intestinal bleeding, diabetes, and mental disturbance early in treatment occurred more frequently in the corticosteroid group. Expand
Clinical Features of the Diabetic Syndrome Appearing after Steroid Therapy
TLDR
The nosological use of the term "steroid" diabetes should be extended to include the diabetes occurring in association with conditions where severe endocrine disorders obviously exist and the diabetes in patients with no definite clinical signs of hyperfunction of the adrenal cortex but in whom there is biochemical evidence of hypercorticism.

Steroid Diabetes In Man: The Development of Diabetes During Treatment with Cortisone and Corticotropin
TLDR
A detailed analysis of the diabetes, observed with a follow up on its subsequent course lasting up to iVz years, is presented and special attention is devoted to a comparison to those previously described as steroid diabetes in animals 1-4 and man. Expand
THE CATARACT‐INDUCING EFFECT OF SYSTEMIC CORTICOSTEROID THERAPY
TLDR
It is difficult at present to give an unambiguous answer to the question of whether there is a risk of causing cataracts inherent in general corticosteroid therapy, because of the extremely varying results of investigations into posterior subcapsular cataract. Expand
Ten-year Follow-up of Subjects with Impaired Glucose Tolerance: Prevention of Diabetes by Tolbutamide and Diet Regulation
TLDR
It seems possible that treatment with diet regulation, in combination with tolbutamide, may prevent or postpone progression from impaired glucose tolerance to manifest diabetes. Expand
