Greetings all you wise members. I have a question about supplementation. I am 65 and currently have PMR and am at 9 mg. tapering. I also have osteopenia, not treating with fosamax but with calcium, K2, D, strontium, and magnesium. I also have a weighted vest and do weight bearing exercise. I take turmeric for my immune system and inflammation.
My question is- if your immune system is in "hyper drive" due to the PMR and you are trying to tone down the inflammation with prednisone, am I working against myself by taking a natural "immune booster" like turmeric?
One other unrelated question - I have been having vertigo, but read conflicting reports about prednisone and vertigo at a relatively low dose? Thinking that the vertigo is not connected to the PMR or prednisone?
Thanks again for your insights.
