Assessment of the Clinical Importance of Insulin Resistance & Steroid-Associated Hyperglycemia in Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis

Grants and Contracts Details


The purpose of this study is to assess the relationship of blood glucose levels in persons with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) who have experienced a relapse and will be receiving intravenous steroids for the relapse, to their recovery from the relapse. Steroid exposure commonly leads to elevated serum blood glucose, however, standardized monitoring of blood glucose levels in the outpatient setting is not common. The clinical impact of any associated elevated blood glucose during steroid administration is unknown. We hypothesize that the blood glucose response to steroid treatment is clinically relevant to the MS-relapse recovery.
