Any doctor who prescribes long or frequent courses of pred should order bone scans for their patients. And yes, you could certainly be denied pred - particularly if you're already at risk for osteoporosis.
The good news is you CAN rebuild bone density once you're off the pred. I was diagnosed with oste
openia (the precursor to osteoporosis) from pred use, but was able to rebuild to a healthy bone density range through healthy diet and exercise - particularly heavy weight training.
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis spring 1999.
