I got a nice email back from the endocrinologist. Honestly I am grateful to have found such a kind specialist. He was very clear that I should lower to the minimum dosage possible.
If it was 7.5mg of Prednisone per day which suited me so above the 5mg biological dosage recommended for adrenal glands insufficiency, it was considered as a treatment and not a replacement so I had to take daily calcium and vit D. I had to have a bone density scan every two years. I had to be vigilant of cardio-vascular side effects such as high blood pressure, as well as risk of diabetes and weight gain. And reduce salt intake.
Well I’m going down from 9mg to 8mg today but I must say I have had to increase my inhalers and started to take paracetamol for pain again from time to time. The lesser of two evils probably.

Have a good Sunday xx
