Research reveals that Osteoporosis is one of the major complications of prolonged corticosteroid treatment. Efforts need to be made to minimise the dose of steroid and to reduce the risk factors.
12.2 million allergy sufferers visit their GP’s annually for immune-suppressant drug treatments to alleviate the symptoms of rhinitis, asthma, eczema or hives caused by dustmite, pet, mould and hayfever particles in the home. Unfortunately, Osteoporosis is one of the major complications of corticosteroid therapy! Efforts need to be made to minimise the dose of steroid and to attempt to improve risk factors as illustrated by the right hand of a 24 year old patient with acute osteoporosis!
The solution is to treat the cause of allergic reactions and not just the symptoms. Bio-Life are launching the HomeCare range of Allergy UK and National Pharmacy Association preventatives that reduce the allergen load in the home by over 90% such that over 97% of allergy suffers can tolerate them without resort to prescription drugs. The products based on negatively charged surfactants and essential oils that are natural acaricides offer a diet friendly alternative.
A Kelp and Vitamin B&C supplement compliments the treatment and kick starts the thyroid gland that governs your metabolism. The inclusion of Vitamin D and Calcium in the diet together with regular exposure to sunlight can allow regeneration of bone density once the steroid therapy has been stopped so patients should be re-assured. In this instance, the condition is reversible.
