I finished my DSNS taper of pred on 13th March, after 20 months.
I have now set about seeing whether I should and could change my blood thinner from warfarin to one of a number of more recent NOAC drugs, which offer a number of benefits.
I noted that warfarin 'reduces the availability of vitamin K produced in the body', whereas the NOACs directly target the clotting machanism.
At a recent PMRGCAuk meetup, a member mentioned taking vitamin K supplement, as it facilitates the take up of calcium in building bones.
A lightbulb moment for me, and yet another reason to see about switching to NOACs, as I know pred can reduce bone density, and I think PMR can also?
Would anyone have any thoughts on this?
