Steroid Use And Negative Blood Tests
Posted 10 December 2012 - 12:19 PM
He has all the signs and symptoms of celiac:
Severe Fatigue ( iron levels tested low on blood testl)
Nauseous after eating
Severe abdominal cramping and bloating
Bruising (his pt levels blood test came back as high)
He is so small in comparison to his peers, and way smaller than his brother was at this age
Lactose Intolerance test are positive
Frequent infections every 4-6 weeks (mostly sinus)
Constipation (at times he has the opposite and can hardly make it to the washroom on time)
Funny rash on knees and now once at ankle (Red bumps and blisters - very itchy before new one comes out)
He has severe asthma and is taking a fairly high dose of corticosteroid for his age twice a day. He is also taking a steroid nasal spray.
I am wondering if the steroids can have anything to do with the negative blood results we are getting?

"Would taking steroids cause the blood tests to be inaccurate?
Yes, but only if you have been taking steroids for a prolonged period of time."
