What type of cortisone were you taking? Prednisone or another? It makes a difference for the effects. Bone loss is one of the effects of long term steroid use. So is aging, lack of exercise and lack of vitamin D and calcium in the diet.
More information would be helpful. The thyroid issue is separate.
I have heard that supplemental cortisone that we get, I get it as Hydrocortisone can cause bone lose and other problems but to not take it when you have addisons is deadly so just get your bone density checked ever once in awhile. I take 14 to 15 other medicines for other aliments and they are more dangerous than the cortisol I take. Too much floreif is dangerous because it keeps your bodies intake and use and depletion of your water minerals and sodium. Too much or too little can hurt. Ask your doctor, an endocrinoligist is best.
