STEROIDS IN CHILDREN

STEROIDS IN CHILDREN

The use of steroids in children is difficult to justify. For 30 years we've known that prolonged use for asthma and eczema retards growth in children and delays puberty. Many studies of children with juvenile chronic arthritis given steroids show they suffer growth retardation.

Children given topical and inhaled steroids are prone to same side-effects, such as stunted growth and adrenal suppression. 

Steroids may also affect a cognitive performance. In one study, where children are on combination steroid drugs were given tests of visual retention association, the performance of children on the drugs (some six to eight hours after receiving steroid medication) was significantly worse than that of a group of non-asthmatics.
