Description: When the world-renowned flutist Eugenia Zukerman developed a rare lung disease, she discovered prednisone's risks and benefits. Yes, it could save her life, but the side effects, which can include bloating, intense mood swings, changes in hair and skin, gastrointestinal problems, and increased susceptibility to infection, could also threaten her livelihood and sense of well-being. Fortunately, Eugenia had a doctor in the family. Her sister, Julie R. Ingelfinger, a well-known specialist in pediatric nephrology and hypertension at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, quickly volunteered to help Eugenia in minimizing the potential side effects. In her search for appropriate and detailed materials to help her sister cope with her course of prednisone, Julie was startled to find out how little help was available for patients undergoing this difficult treatment. Together the two sisters decided to remedy this situation with a detailed, practical guide to making treatment with glucocorticoids as effective and as trouble-free as possible. Packed with everything your doctor didn't have time to tell you, including recipes, exercises, and tips based on personal experience, Coping with Prednisone is an invaluable handbook for health-care workers and caregivers, and especially for patients themselves.
