I posted earlier about my concern with the steroids/diabetes link. Now I found an article that said prednisone use was associated with atrial fibrillation in a study of 8000 people over 10 years with a 6-fold increase in chances with a dosage of over 7.5 mg(it was the daily dose and not length of time that was important). If I'm comparing apples to apples, I'm supposed to get 1 gram per day for 5 days of solumedrol. This is making it difficult to decide whether to get the treatment.
