Hi, I'd like to know if anyone, on this forum, has been on long term steroids (prednisolone) for a long period of time? I have been on steroids, or 38 years and can never come off them. My minimum dose is 5mg but have to increase when not well. I started with asthma at 14 years old and have NEVER been off them since. I now have osteoporosis, due to the steroids and lost over an inch in height and my weight has fluctuated soooo much over the years, from 8 stone and peaking at around 13 stone!!! Id love to find someone who has a similar steroid history.
