Let us mourn and learn a painful lesson with the death of 32 year old Silvi Ward who died from multiple organ failure after being prescribed azathioprine and systemic steroids in a catastrophic failed attempt to treat her eczema.
Mrs Ward moved to Wigan from Indonesia in 2002 and married her husband Andrew Ward a year later.
She suffered from skin irritations since childhood but sought treatment after moving to Britain.
After a number of treatments failed to cure her eczema she was prescribed azathioprine in February 2009 however she stopped taking the drug in March 2009 when blood tests revealed her white blood cell levels had fallen.
Her hair had also begun to fall out.
On April 9 Mrs Ward was admitted to Wigan Infirmary with chest pains but allowed to return home after tests.
The next day she was taken back to hospital with severe chest pains a sore throat.
While in hospital she developed a rash across her body and began bleeding in her mouth, Mrs Ward’s condition then deteriorated rapidly.
She was taken to Intensive Care, where she died on March 14.
Consultant Pathologist James Harrison, who conducted a post mortem, said Mrs Ward had developed bone marrow depression which had caused the intensive rash and internal haemorrhage.
Bottom line, steroids are never safe. Steroids suppress the immune system, making people susceptible to even more harm that may cause further injury and in this case death.
Looking back in 2007 I myself was tasked with guarding my brother against the ignorant hospital doctor in Capitol Medical Center when he checked himself into the E.R. for being dizzy. It became a SHOUTING MATCH between me and that harmful lady doctor who wanted my brother to swallow her steroids. I shouted for DISCHARGE AGAINST DOCTORS ORDERS. And I did not care if we had to PAY the hospital bills in full while we chose to forgo medical insurance which required compliance to the doctor who wanted my brother to take steroids.
This article proves the resolve I had way back in 2007 that steroids were very very dangerous.
Steroids are the wrong way to go in treating eczema. First of all, it is no cure. Second, it is suppression of normal immune function. Eczema is the body’s cleansing mechanism at work. Suppress this cleansing mechanism and the body internally has to carry even more pollution… dirtier blood. That can never be right. Simple logic.
How many more people have to die from steroid treatments?
