?I'm a 36-year-old male who was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease aged 10 and prescribed heavy doses of Prednisolone (up to 60mg in short bursts) throughout my adolescence. I had the usual awful side effects from the steroids although they decreased greatly when I tapered off the meds. Years later, however, I still have certain mild Cushing's-like symptoms, such as moon/red face, thin skin, acne, and weight gain around the midsection and face. This is years after I last took Prednisolone regularly.
Has anybody else suffered from permanent Cushing's-like symptoms despite coming off Prednisolone, or have any idea how these symptoms might be treated?
