I am so happy to hear that you are home and especially that you caught this flare up in time. Has the prednisone affected your liver? Do you also suffer with pericarditis? How long will you have to be on prednisone this time and how many milligrams are you taking?
Do you live alone or is there someone who can help you at times like these?
You are in my prayers and I pray that you can have many days without flare-ups!
yes, it is a catch 22 - that is why this disease is so insidious! Take good care of yourself!

Sue....the prednisone raised my enzyme levels in my liver dangereoulsy high. Being in remission for liver cancer I can take no chances with anything going through my liver. No percaditis as far as we know at this time.
I was one 100 mg a day but stopped the prednisone as soon as we saw it was affecting my liver enzymes as badly as it was...luckily my wife has been through all this since day one with me and my doctor does make house calls when I need him...he's a god send!!!!

Here is an interesting article that discusses what you can expect when adding these additional resources to your body.
These are nutraceutical foods - that is, foods with pharmaceutical properties. Any doc worth his salt will tell you to eat properly. This is exactly what you will be doing when you add the glycos to your diet. But very few actually inquire in depth as to exactly what one is eating.
