Is anyone here on a maintenance dose of prednisone? For how long and the ml? How do you keep track of your osteoporosis?

There were already two threads started for the predisone, and I have been on it before , but I was told I probably should avoid it if possible with bone loss. You will probably get an answer or you could go back and read the other two they are still showing on the screen.
