Hypereosinophilic Syndrome - if I don't want to take prednasone, what other natural treatment works?

This is not something you want to skip the accepted treatment and try to treat yourself. It can be fatal if not treated appropriately. Unfortunately steroids are the only treatment for it.

Hello Mstendal
I totally understand why you have asked this question. Unfortunately it is one that no one can answer. As you know your diagnosis is extremely rare. Because of this there are no evidence-based guidelines on your condition within the medical field. Thus there is no evidence-based information on alternative therapies. This means that Kaismama is correct. Your clinician can only treat you within what is known to have a favourable result, and that is Prednisolone based treatment.
I wish you well and take care

Hello unfortunately that is one of the side effects of Prednisolone. Mepolizumab
May be of interest to you.
Take care

Hi Mstendal,

I just got a diagnosis of HES a week or so ago. Doctor started me on Prednisone but now have switched to Hydroxyurea (Hydrea)... you may want to ask your doctor and let me know his thoughts. Drug not a natural treatment. Suppose to work for HES.
