Steroids ulcers

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) recommended dosing for systemic prednisone, prednisolone, or methylprednisolone in pediatric patients whose asthma is uncontrolled by inhaled corticosteroids and long-acting bronchodilators is 1–2 mg/kg/day in single or divided doses. It is further recommended that short course, or "burst" therapy, be continued until the patient achieves a peak expiratory flow rate of 80% of his or her personal best or until symptoms resolve. This usually requires 3 to 10 days of treatment, although it can take longer. There is no evidence that tapering the dose after improvement will prevent a relapse.

On the other hand, Dr. Sheppard reports successful outcomes when using cyclosporine in patients with dry eye who have pure aqueous tear deficiency. For patients with dry eye accompanied by redness, blepharitis, significant tarsal changes, or ocular allergy, he administers induction therapy with a topical steroid at one visit and then maintains them on cyclosporine for the long term. Once the patients are in a successful maintenance phase, Dr. Sheppard recommends that they use their steroid for acute flare-ups triggered by travel, allergies, respiratory infection, or exposure to environmental irritants. His steroid of choice for this indication is loteprednol.

In the USA, Medicare do not reimburse treatments associated with hospital acquired pressure ulcers ( Medicare Program 2007 ; Rosenthal 2007 ). One of the objectives of this decision was to provide incentives to hospitals to prevent occurrence of these ulcers ( Rosenthal 2007 ). Therefore, it is important to implement effective treatment options for existing pressure ulcers in order to prevent development of further ulcers. Investigators have suggested that treatment of pressure ulcers with anabolic steroids might be effective for promoting lean body mass and appendicular skeletal muscle mass (combined lean body mass from all four limbs) ( Sattler 2011 ), healing of a wound after a major operation ( Jiang 1989 ), chronic and cutaneous and wounds ( Demling 1998 ; Demling 2000 , respectively), and for stage IV ulcers ( Collins 2004 ).
