The thing is that steroids do raise blood glucose levels and that is the most likely reason why your glucose levels have become high
The blood glucose of around 20 is a very high glucose level and is an indication to visit the ER
Therefore I would recommend that you should visit the emergency department and get your insuling dose adjusted and have this high level of glucose treated.
Let me know if you have any further questions.

I had sort of come to this conclusion myself but am glad to have it confirmed. I raised my insulin dose slightly and blood levels are now coming down slowly. I shall go and see my GP Monday and talk to him. Thankyou. I was really concerned as I have never experienced this before.
