Does anyone know if steroids are bad for our kidneys? I am having an outpatient prostate-reduction procedure done today and they are having me take dexamethasone for a week to counteract the inflammation. I know that Non-steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDS) are a no no, but what about SAIDs? I looked up dexamethasone on the web but couldn't find anything about short-term kidney risks. I know long-term steroid use by atheletes can damage their kidneys.
