Life-threatening Prednisone Mistake

Story of Life-threatening Situation in Prednisone Mistake

It all started with a frantic text from a husband watching his wife die in the hospital.

He told me she was way too young to die, but no one in the hospital knew how to take care of her rare autoimmune condition.

She would die unless something changed, soon.

I had no idea how I could make any difference, since not only am I not licensed in their state, but I have never worked in a hospital.

But she is my friend, so I dropped everything and in the middle of my kid’s basketball game.

I stepped out into the freezing winter night and called the hospital.

Watch now to find out what simple mistake they made in her care and how you can prevent this from happening to you!

Prednisone Warrior in Life-Threatening Situation

This prednisone and steroid warrior was in a life-threatening prednisone mistake and had been switched from Medrol to Cortef. And was receiving an incorrect dosage, leading to a dangerously low potassium level.

Fixed Prednisone Dosage

Fortunately, after the dose was corrected, she was able to go home, and the life-threatening prednisone mistake was solved.

To help with a similar situation, there are tapering videos available to assist in reducing prednisone or adrenal insufficient doses.
