prednisone and weight gain
i too know the tortures of the weight gain with prednisone. i personally did the atkins diet and exercised. i lost 50 pounds in less than 6 months. if your kidney function is normal this would be an excellent diet to speak to your doctor about. prednisone is really a pain in that area but as a whole it's one of the absolute BEST drugs in getting our flares down QUICKLY when you compare it to allllll the other drugs used to treat lupus. everything else takes a while to work-prednisone works pretty darn quick! i really hope this helps. good luck to you!
I was diagnosed with lupus at the age of 14. I am now 29.
