Prednisone

Prednisone

Will predispose help the inflamation I have in my liver and kidney?

A MyLupusTeam Member said:

Prednisone is the reason I'm still alive. It's a two edged sword. My bones and skin are fragile, but since I'm unable to take biologicals because of my history of MRSA. I will be on prednisone for the rest of my life
The goal is to be on the lowest dose you possibly can.
The problem is, all drugs have side effects. The question is, do the benefits outweigh the risk.

Taking prednisone has given me AVN (Avascular Nucrosis). My bones are disintegrating. I had both hips replaced this year. Next year will be my knees. I'm only 54...be careful people.
