Has anyone on long term steroid treatment seen a sustained effect on their adrenal glands and their production of corticosteroids?
If so, how long were you taking steroids and at what dose?
I have been on N Plate for three years remaining above 100,000 with a dose of 1mcg/kg. My counts are up and down like a rollercoaster ride sometimes in the normal range above 140,000 and sometimes not. I consider myself very lucky. I have suffered with arthritis for over 50 years and I had a severe flare up recently. The issue is what to do for inflammation? One thought is steroids at a low dose less than 5mg per day whenever flare ups persist. If anyone has had success with anything else please let me know.
Thank you in advance for responding.
