    I've been on prednisone for the past 15 months because I have polymyalgia and arteritis. The last blood work I had done showed that I have a high bilirubin score. My doctor ordered an ultrasound of my liver and pancreas and it showed both to be normal size and appearance. My questions are - has anyone out there ever had this problem and could this be caused by the prednisone.
