Hi, I got adult asthma a year ago, it hasn't been that well controlled since, I've used prednisone afew times with infections ( to which I get many) for short doses ( 5 days).
My concern is, if things don't improve that I will need to take steroids daily ( doctor already mentioning it). i know the complications of taking them, and not taking them but my concern at the moment is whether you really do pile on the weight?
It's not just vanity ( although of course is a part) but I'm already overweight ( not obese) and have terrible reflux, gallstone, fatty liver and so I'm working on loosing the weight to help this,
If I take the steroids, it feels like I'm going to end up in a vicious circle
