Impossible to answer: You need to provide more specifics. Why was the test ordered in the first place? Why are you taking prednisolone? That igg level is not alarming to me.

A 37-year-old member asked:

Which is more recommended, adrenal glandular or cortisone/prednisolone?

1 doctor answer4 doctors weighed in

Neither: Actually, more Prednisone is used than either of the other 2 meds. Cortisone has been the traditionally used med but must be given several times daily. Prednisone and Prednisolone can usually be given once daily. Also, because cortisone causes some salt retention, it is better for those with low blood pressure while the others are better for those with higher blood pressure.

It depends.: The botlle should list an expiration date; if it doesn't, call the pharmacy that filled that prescription and they can look it up in their system.

Lots: Prednisolone is a steroid used to shut down inflammation that causes asthma symptoms, trouble breathing, etc. Used infrequently in short bursts, it can cause mild behavioral changes, agitation, and hyperactivity. Over time, with repeated use, it can cause a decrease in growth, fat deposition, acne, and bone thinning.
