How much calcium and vitamin d is needed while on steroids and is their any essential vitamins and minerals I should be mindful of?

How much calcium and vitamin d is needed while on steroids and is their any essential vitamins and minerals I should be mindful of?

The same as if you: The same amount as if you we're not on steroids. Steroid use does not affect dietary needs as long as you are not deficient in the first place. The steroids affect the metabolism or activity of bone turnover which is treated by getting off the steroids, minimizing the dose or with other medications that aid in the building up of decreased bone density. You need to see your doctor to assess.

Anything apparently: By definition, "alternative" is different than modern western medicine. Generally any drug, herb, treatment, or oil that stands up to rigorous scientific scrutiny is included in modern medicine.
