Take all the calcium and Vitamin D you can stomach.  I got osteoporosis from 1.5 years of Entocort and I hear prednisone is way worse at causing bone loss.

Yes being on pred can do this, but also having IBD makes it much more difficult to absorb vitamins and nutrients properly as well.

once when i was on prednisone,i had and IV infusion of iron.i think by having it go directly into the bloodstream,it can be absorbed better.you might want to ask your doctor about that.
