I have slowly been learning the effects of prednisone on the body and its nutritional status. How many of us were told at the beginning of the PMR/pred journey to take calcium supplements? How many of us were also told not to take calcium at the same time as pred, only discovering this later? How many of us were told that extra calcium can cause an imbalance with magnesium so we need to make sure we get more magnesium, hopefully through diet, but maybe supplements will be needed? How many of us know that pred also depletes other important nutrients, like potassium? How many of us know that nutritional imbalances and/or deficiencies can even cause the same kinds of issues, like pain, that we are being treated for, or other problems which, because nutrition isn't considered by the doctors, can complicate our medical picture?
