and there is beneficial role of steroid like omnacortil (prednisolon) for decrease progresion
side effects of prednisolone are --swelling, rapid weight gain, feeling short of breath;
severe depression,
bloody or tarry stools, coughing up blood;report to your doctor if any of them occurs
dose of prednisolone are given as per weight and the doses your daughter have are adequate.
