PI: John Metzler, MD

The purpose of this research is to better understand the variations in the blood glucose levels after cortisone injection in patients with diabetes. Cortisone injections are known to increase the blood glucose levels in diabetic patients and this study may help to develop better ways of managing blood glucose levels in diabetic patients who are receiving these injections.
