My daughter has been trying to wean off steroids over the last year but when ever she gets below 10mg she becomes unwell so the consultant puts her back to 40mg and we start the wean down program again.
He has said for her not to go below 20mg now with Covid been such risk. She normally has monthly reviews with her mepo injection but I am giving that at home now and will not see the consultant for 3 months. I have noticed her ‘moon face’ and weight increase. Obviously at the moment all I’m concerned about is keeping her healthy but should she take any supplements or prescription while she is on a relatively high dose of steroids for a longer period to protect her bones?
At 18 she is unhappy with her bloated face and weight gain.
Thanks in advance
