Relationship between prednisone treatment duration and dose of prednisone on the last visit in the matched cohort. The overall use of prednisone through time is presented as a ratio of the time under prednisone in months, over the total follow-up time, to account for different follow times. Patients with higher ratios of prednisone use through time were more likely to have higher doses at the last visit (r = 0.5, p < 0.001) for both groups. There was no significant difference between groups, although controls tended to have higher doses of prednisone at the last visit (p = ns).
