My son is 11 years old with DMD and on Prenisolone (10days on and 10 days off etc) for just over a year now.  Does anyone know if it is ok to given him a Protein Shake  (Matrix 5.0) each day whilst on steriods.  My brother bought it for him thinking he would benefit however I'm not sure if it is ok to have whilst on meds.

I do not see what the problem can be. In fact, while on steroids, the boys should eat high protein, low carb, low salt and low sugar foods if possible.
Thank you for replying.  I know it seemed a silly question and I thought that it should in fact benefit him but I just needed someone elses thoughts on this.  I'm on my own making decisions all the time for both my boys who have DMD and sometimes  I think I just need some reassurance that I'm doing the right thing. I am very glad you replied.
