Oral corticosteroids used for asthma

Table 1 summarizes baseline characteristics of the oral corticosteroid and control groups. As expected, the age and gender distributions of these two groups were similar: their mean age was around 57 years and % were female. Oral corticosteroid users were more likely to have a history of rheumatoid arthritis (% of oral corticosteroid users vs. % of the control patients). The most frequently recorded indication was respiratory disease: around 40% of the patients had respiratory diseases recorded and 13% had associated respiratory symptoms. Skin and musculoskeletal disorders were recorded in about 6% of the oral corticosteroid users. A history of nonvertebral fractures in the year before follow-up was present in % of the oral corticosteroid group and % of the controls.
