Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (joint pain)
Have been taking Corticosteriod #cortan 20mg (Prednisolone) for a long time!
A few days later
Both,wrist joint and pelvic bone have been,fractured!
Now the question is,
WHY Can these steroid exposure patients break bones with a small injury?
That guy is the root of all mischief #Steroid!
Corticosteroids are life saving drugs!
We regularly use Cortiocosteriod or Glucocorticoid, a low-dose or high-dose life-saving drug for asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, SLE, cancer, HIV or other infections!
But the solution of its Adverse Effects is hardly thought out. For example,
Conclusion 1: Bone loss is caused by prolonged use of corticosteroids, usually more at the skeletal site.
Conclusion 2: Eating Steriod will reduce the production of Calcium in the body! As a result, there will be a lack of Calcium in the body! Because Corticosteriod reduce the intestinal absorption and increase Renal calcium excretion!
Conclusion 3: Hypoparathyroidsm will occur as a result of prolonged use of corticosteriod, as a result lses Calcium will be produced in the body. So the bone will be easily brittle.
With Cusing syndrome development
Corollary 4: Long-term corticosteroid intake will result in spinal reducing! Because Steroid Bind to specific receptors on the target cells and bring about the action.
Conclusion 5: Prolonged use of steroids will cause insufficiency in the adrenal gland. As a result there will be hormonal imbalances in the body. There will be mineral and calcium deficiency! Malnutrition will appear! The body’s immunity will be reduced! !
Conclusion 6: Those who have been using Steriod Inhaler for Asthma for a long time, there is also a risk of Bone Density! Results risk bone fracture!
Corollary: Long-term steroids can lead to Cushing’s syndrome, resulting in hyperfunction of the adrenal cortex! Tumors can occur in the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland!
Conclusion 6: Glucocorticoid or Corticosteriod, stimulate the fight and flight response of Catecholamines!
Prevents bone formation! Weakens the body’s immunity!
Steroids can have more different side effects! Diabetics, heart disease, kidney disease, etc.
