I have Sjogrens and possible Lupus and am on a low dose Prednisalone for the past two years. I am about to have a trial of Mycophenolate in two weeks with the hope of reducing my steroids further.
Would blood results for thyroid tests be changed by being on Prednisalone?
I do worry that taking steroids all the time might mask other things that could have similar symptoms.
Before going on the steroids I was occasionally borderline hypothyroid but my present surgery seems totally uninteresting in rechecking.
My previous GP always checked a couple of times a year.
I wondered if being on steroids would normalise any hashimotos that was lurking in the past.
Interested in your thoughts. X
