A prospective randomized controlled trial that examined early corticosteroid withdrawal versus maintenance on low-dose prednisone for 6 months to 5 years following kidney transplantation failed to show a significant impact on the incidence of PTDM, suggesting that, at very low doses, the aforementioned effects of corticosteroids on insulin sensitivity and glucoregulation do not occur [38].
