Steroids and osteoporosis


Hi all,

We are looking to chat to someone who has been affected by taking steroids long term and been diagnosed with osteoporosis. It's for a media story so you'd be sharing your story in public.

If you'd like to chat to us in the next couple of days about this, please email Hannah on

or drop me a DM if that's easier.

I'd be really interested to hear about anything this turns up - I've only been on daily prednisolone a relatively short time, but one of the things I've really noticed is a chronic fatigue in & around my hips & upper legs. I've been trying to build up some strength there, but in the end, I just end up feeling more tired. Any tips, exercise, routines, etc. to minimise the long-term risk would be very welcome.

I am a long term user of prendisolone steroids I can have a daily dosage of 40mg for a course of 8 weeks about 4 to 5 times a year and inhaler steroids daily for over 15 years! I’ve been diagnosed with osteoporosis and osteoarthritis as a cause of this.

look in the daily mail today the story is in.
