fat on predisone

October 26, 2006 at 1:34 pm

I gained 40 pounds in two months on Predisone. On top of that it did not make me stronger. I’ve had CIDP for five years now. The only thing that has helped me is Cellcept (auto immune suppresant), Plasma Pheresis (106 treatments thus far) and lots of pain medication. I also exercise everyday. Exercise has helped my weight issue, weakness, fatigue, and even helps with depression (heaven knows this disease can be depressing).

Keep taking care of yourself.
