I've been taking prednisone for 2 1/2 months and just found out last week that I have to take it for at least 4 more months. I've gained 20 lbs in those 2 1/2 months and my face is huge (see pictures in my profile). I was wondering if anybody had any advice on a diet that seemed to help with the side effects of prednisone? I've tried to research it but haven't found much. One person said that switching your diet to just fruit and veggies helped. And other things I've seen are lowering your sodium intake, increasing protien and potassium, and drinking lots of water. I think I'm going to try these things, but any other recommendations anyone may have would be greatly appreciated!
