I am on HIGH dose-ages of prednisone daily not including when I have to go in and get 1000mg by IV on top of my daily dose. To pull myself out of the severe flare-ups that I go into. The Dr's (to top that off) have put me on a whole 10 min work out schedule. In the last 3yrs since all of this has started I have gained about 70lbs. I am heavier now than I have ever been before, including when I was 9mos pregnant with both of our boys. Before that I was VERY active. So to say the least I am very heartbroke and at my wits end. Up until this I have taken it "with a grain of salt." But I can't any longer. My blood pressure is high, I have heart problems now, etc. I NEED to lose the weight. But how? Is it possible? I am having a thymectomy to hopefully put my disease in remission & get off of the prednisone. It has caused horrid side effects. PLEASE RECOMMENDATIONS WILL BE MUCH APPRECIATED especially if you have been on prednisone before also!
