Side effects of prednisolone steroids

Patient: I have been on and off prednisolone steroids for the past 7 years and have been on high doses. I have not been on them for a while but was wondering about the damage they may have caused. I am 20 years old but look about 15 and don’t grow much facial hair. I am always tired and also have man boobs. I was reading about this and figured out it could be due to hormone balances. Is there anything I can do to sort this out?
