Cross-sectional studies have suggested that asthmatic patients receiving high dose inhaled corticosteroids and intermittent courses of oral corticosteroids have reduced bone mass. This prospective 2-yr study was undertaken to evaluate changes in bone density of patients receiving high doses of inhaled corticosteroids. Patients (n = 33) (males aged 18-50 yrs, females aged 18-40 yrs) on inhaled corticosteroids 1,000-2,000 microg x day(-1), were randomized in a double-blind fashion to either… CONTINUE READING
