Trolic (Prednisone) is used alone or with other medications to treat the symptoms of low corticosteroid levels (lack of certain substances that are usually produced by the body and are needed for normal body functioning). Prednisone is also used to treat other conditions in patients with normal corticosteroid levels. These conditions include certain types of arthritis; severe allergic reactions; multiple sclerosis (a disease in which the nerves do not function properly); lupus (a disease in which the body attacks many of its own organs); and certain conditions that affect the lungs, skin, eyes, kidneys blood, thyroid, stomach, and intestines. Prednisone is also sometimes used to treat the symptoms of certain types of cancer.

Prednisone is in a class of medications called corticosteroids. It works to treat patients with low levels of corticosteroids by replacing steroids that are normally produced naturally by the body. It works to treat other conditions by reducing swelling and redness and by changing the way the immune system works.

As with any prescription medication there's no telling how well you might respond or react to it ahead of time, since these drugs can and usually do effect each person differently. If your doctor prescribed it to you for this purpose, then he must think it will be effective to some degree. I would try it just to see how well it works within a few days or so. Worst case scenario in my opinion, is that you may have to try something else due to this drug's side effects.

I hope this info helps to answer your question!

Hi ,I did some test for my life cover to be increased and the test revealed that my GGT was raised.This was a bit of a concern with the underwriter.

but I was given atleast 2 months to see if I can lower it down as they were not sure as to what might have raised it.
May you advise me on a good life style to lower or manage my GGT and perhaps medication to take to help with this?
