I was looking for some information on when the adrenal glands begin to kick in again when reducing steroids and I came across this article. It has really useful detail on taking steroids generally, and what to expect with reductions, and I wish I had found it months and months ago when I first started taking steroids for PMR. So many questions I had over the past 18 months are summarised in an easy to understand way here.
It gives some excellent information on what to eat/not eat when on steroids and good supplementation and foods for when you are at the point of lower dose steroids and hoping to nudge the adrenals awake again. Also it pinpoints so many of the symptoms that come up frequently in questions here -- eg YES, it is normal to start getting sweats and so forth as you drop down below 7.5mg or so...! I'd thought maybe I was just imaging things at times but it seems many changes are due to steroids as the dose drops.
Anyway I hope others find this helpful:
