Can prednisone cause problems with the thryoid?

Can prednisone cause problems with the thryoid?

Not likely: B"sd In severe hyperthyroidism corticosteroids like prednisone may be given with one reason being to decrease the conversion of thyroxine (T4) to its active form liothyronine (T3). Steroids also suppress the pituitary thyroid stimulating hormone, TSH, often seen in "sick thyroid" syndrome but this usualy does not result in hypothryoidism as uptake of T3 by cells is higher.

Can prednisone cause someone to become extremely tired out of nowhere?

Yes, talk to doc: High-dose prednisone can cause many side effects. You may get hyper or very tired, euphoric or depressed. When it is stopped, you may feel even more tired. If you have been on prednisone for many months, your adrenal gland may stop working leading to a transient adrenal failure. Note also that the disease condition for which prednisone is prescribed may be be a factor. Call your doc.

I have pancreatitis caused by medication (prednisone 50mg) I would like to know what foods I can't eat and what foods I should eat. Thanks?

I have pancreatitis caused by medication (prednisone 50mg) I would like to know what foods I can't eat and what foods I should eat. Thanks?

Protein: The pancreas is a large gland in your upper abdomen, behind your intestine and stomach, which produces enzymes to digest foods, particularly carbohydrate and fats. The two main enzymes are amylase and lipase, and levels of these two chemicals can be measured in your blood when you have pancreatitis. So to your question, a high protein diet may be the best choice when your pancreatitis is active.

I am tapering of of prednisone. And went from 30 mg to 20 mg yesterday. Today we left for the beach and I forgot my medicine, will this cause meffecti?

Prednisone: It depends on why you're taking it and how long you've been taking it. The longer you've been taking it, the more dependent you are because your own adrenal function has been suppressed and any sudden withdrawal of Prednisone like what you described may result in unpredictable body response. If you've been on it for a short while, the condition for which you're on it may get worse or not improve.

Can 15 mg prednisone cause me to feel shaky? I've been on this dose since August 6this year

Sure.: As a side effect, Prednisone can cause shakiness. Don't stop it, though; if you want to get off it you need to taper it over some time - consult with the prescribing doctor about this if the shakiness gets to the point that you want to come off it.
