Subject: Re:Pred Belly

Does Pred belly go away or subside as the dosage of pred decreases?
Maggie's in her 3rd week of PediaPred (. 50ml twice a day) for her GE and Insulomia. The dosage is being reduced later this week to .25 ml twice a day. Will the swelling in her tummy go down when she gets less pred? She's always been this tiny little thing never weighing more than 860 grams. Since her biopsy on August 8 she's up to 1060 grams! Her belly isn't stopping her from trotting around the house but I was just curious.
Connie, Butch, and Maggie
