caution on inhaled steroids for emphysema
Inhaled steroids do appear to somewhat enhance quality of life for
those with emphysema, but is not without risk.
thinning of the lung wall can progess to the point of hemmorraging as
it did with my mother three years ago, resulting in her death.
caution would especially apply if the patient is on anticoagulants or
herbs which have an anticoagulant effect.
