thanks for the feedback. My son is feeling great. Sometimes a little gassy but we are figuring out which foods he can tolerate and which he cannot. I mentioned Cushing's because last night I noticed numerous bright red stetch marks on both of his thighs that he never had before. He has not gained weight so I dont know why he would have these. He never noticed them because they are on the back of his legs. When I did a search on the internet, Cushing's came up as possible reason. When I read more about it, it seems that he has many of the other symptoms ...abnormal hair growth..he has abnormal amount of hair on his face, shoulders and back for a 14 yr old, hair loss on his head, moonface, severe acne and now the stretch marks.
He is weaning off the Pred and today goes from 10 to 5mg for another week. I am worried about adrenal gland function and don't know what to look for. I am calling the Dr in the morning.
