Sorry to hear about
your recent diagnosis of oste
openia. I have oste
openia, too. I've never been on pred, but I have a very small frame so I think my bones might be naturally less dense compared to average. My doctor put me on a calcium & vit. D supplement and I do weight-bearing exercises to try to gain some bone mass or at least decrease further loss at this point.
Are you on any meds for your UC right now? I'm sorry to hear you're having a rough time right now. It sucks having this disease and being young. Well, I'm sure it would suck at any point...
p.s. - I think prednisone (US) is the same as prednisolone.
