Adrenal Suppression with Repeated Spinal Steroid Injections:

This is a medical issue that’s not been looked into. Basically if you have steroids in your system longer than six weeks you can suppress your adrenal glands which you need during times of physical stress. People with depressed adrenal function come to the emergency room with a broken leg and have low blood pressures and end up dying.  Repeated steroid injections are absorbed into the body and may or may not suppress adrenal function. This needs to be studied.

We like our active members to volunteer for projects that sound interesting to them.  We need Lots of help!  So look down the list of projects and let us know via email at:
