My son takes a low dose of prednisone every day and has to carefully watch his food intake to remain -slighty overweight. I will be glad when he can get off the meds.

those were interesting articles...

The use of steroids is a short term thing.. until my other medication kicks in ... I have an auto immune disease that is related to Lupus...
so the use of steroids is very short term.
