I have two boys six and two that were recently diagnosed with DMD. The six year old falls down daily and although he is able to, he chooses to not use the stairs in our house, and askes to be carried upstairs. One doctor we had seen was against steroid use and another was for it. I am so fearful of the possible side effects and have become hesitant. I'm looking for some advice on the age most people started steriods or the conditions that were present. Also, which type of steriod you are using.
