Q. Can you rebuild bone while taking Prednisone?
The short answer is No. The use of the steroid Prednisone, in fact, causes 20% of all of the osteoporosis in the United States and it has a direct connection to osteoporosis. Dr. Brown has worked to help people get off steroids by trying to get to the root cause of whatever they were taking the steroids for in the first place. We at the Center for Better Bones emphasize that you should want to naturally take the burden off of your cells and cut down damaging effects that come with steroid usage.
