There are two dietary cautions while taking corticosteroids. Corticosteroids can elevate cholesterol in the system so probably keep a control on fat intake (however, cholesterol may be elevated regardless).
Corticosteroids can also cause high blood pressure/fluid retention so cut down on too much salt intake.
Hmm, I never really got sick from it. Are you taking oral or IV Prednizone. I think besides my head blowing up like a balloon the only other issue I had with it was "THRUSH" which if you don't know (I didn't) is a build up of yeast in the body and it occurs in the mouth making everything taste crappy. But this is the IV steriods... Hang in there~Amy Lost in PA
