So what you all are saying is that it makes it harder for my body to make white blood cells and whatever other type of work the immune system does? So i guess prednisone users are more succeptable to diseases?
I read somewhere on healingwell about taking it in the evening i think? its seems better with me b/c I wake up feeling great.
Hi - I do not know about IBS but UC is an inflammation disease. UC and IBS are not the same thing. With UC, your immune system is actually attacking healthy cells. It is a malfunction of the immune system response (triggered by who knows what) that causes your immune system to attack healthy tissues and systems. This does cause inflammation. That is why immune suppressing drugs such as pred can help. These drugs also can help arthritis, asthma, lupus, and all the other varieties of autoimmune diseases. Pred does decrease your white blood cell count and suppress your immune system. So do AZA drugs. Hope this helps!
