Have you asked his doctor about such a high dose? Occasional short term doses of prednisone shouldn't cause any health concerns. Now if he was on it for long term, then yes, he would run into thinning of the bone, higher risk of infections and stunted growth. 60mgs does seem a bit excessive - has he ever been on a lower dose such as 30 or 40mgs? And if so, did it help him?
