Help Reduce the Risk of Adrenal Problems in Kids Taking Steroids

New guidance will put focus on managing the risk of "adrenal suppression" in kids on oral or inhaled corticosteroids (prednisone, etc).

When the steroid dose is lowered or stopped, the adrenal glands may not be able to make enough cortisol...which is needed during times of stress, such as during an illness or surgery.
