Introduction: Maintenance immunosuppressive regimens after renal transplantation (RTx) most often include prednisolone which may induce secondary adrenal insufficiency. Adrenal insufficiency is a potentially life-threatening side effect to glucocorticoid treatment due to the risk of acute adrenal crisis. We aimed to investigate the prevalence of prednisolone-induced adrenal insufficiency in RTx patients receiving long-term low-dose prednisolone treatment.<p class="abstext"...

Objective: Glucocorticoid-induced adrenal insufficiency is highly prevalent, but the clinical consequences are not fully understood. Therefore, the indication of adding stress dosages of glucocorticoid during ongoing anti-inflammatory glucocorticoid treatment remains unclear. The aim of this study was to determine the impact of adrenal function on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in patients receiving ongoing low-dose prednisolone treatment.Methods...
