Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

Do you mean prednisone - the steroid? 

Long term use can affect many parts of the body but short term is different. How long is the plan to be on them? The goal is generally to get them done and over with as soon as possible. Prednisone is not a fun thing to be on at all. 

Steroids should not negatively affect the kidneys although people can have varied reactions to the the medication. 

The adrenal grands are more likely to be affected. 

See if you can get your dosage over with as soon as you can. Talk to your doctor about long term plans to stay on the medication.
