My last DEXA scan at age 69 done via FRAX = mild osteopenia with 0% fracture in the next 10 years. Why do I need to taper at all when I was virtually pain free on 16 mg? I am 71 now.
It seems doctors are desperate to taper patients from steroids too fast for fear of harming bones?? And give a cell killing drug instead as a steroid sparing method.???
Seems crazy to me.
