Endocrinology Report

I am at my good point between chemo infusions now. The next infusion is in early September.

The testing is back from the endocrinologist and is not that great. I now have prednisone induced diabetes, low-T, and bone density loss. The good thing is that we caught things early and medications can still help at this point. Prednisone is a wonder drug, but it can really devastate one's body.

It has bee a while since we visited with Randell and his family, so we made a quick trip to Alabama yesterday. We had fun, but are tired today.

Hello Kerry, thank you for the update. I have your blog listed on mine (http://myastheniagravisblog.blogspot.com/) I was wondering: What was the dosage and frequency of your prednisone regimen?

George: Thanks for listing me on your blog. I have been on as high as 80mg of prednisone daily. I have been on 15mg daily for the last year. MG will not let me go any lower. Thanks --Kerry
