How is steroid induced diabetes diagnosed?

Q: What are the diagnostic criteria for steroid induced diabetes?

A:The criteria for steroid induced diabetes are exactly the same as under any other circumstances, namely a random plasma glucose greater than 11.1 mmol/l, or a fasting plasma glucose greater than 7.0 mmol/l. If there is still doubt, a glucose tolerance test can be performed, but this is not normally necessary.
