Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight while on steroids


Avatar f tn Hey everyone, I'm on methadone too for 6 years now and have gone from 115 lbs of firm, smooth muscle to 160 lbs of cellulite-covered, jiggly fat. Yum. I'm on 70 mg, just like you, Suziblues. Not a really high dose, but enough to pack on the pounds apparently. I have found that it's REALLY hard to lose weight on this stuff... but I agree that I'd rather be overweight than strung out again.

Avatar n tn I am sweating profusely when on the elliptical and believe me, I am giving my heart a strong 30 minute workout. Could there be a medical reason why I am not losing any weight or seeing any noticable difference with all of the effort I am putting forth?
Avatar f tn I have been taking 150 mg a day of Welbutrin for about 2 1/2 months now and have noticed my hair thinning. I'm not losing hair it's just not coming in like it used to.

Avatar f tn I was wondering if any of you have successfully lost weight or stayed the same while pregnant.

I know if Im prego I shouldnt overdo myself on exercise but light exercise and walking wont hurt! :) I just would like to minimize the chance of getting gestational diabetes or preclampsia while prego! :) Thoughts, opinions, concerns, etc are all welcome!!!
Avatar f tn Any advise on how to lose weight while breastfeeding? I got down to under my pre pregnancy weight when my baby was 2 weeks old. Since then, I've gained 10. In the last week I've tried cutting calories but my milk supply has decreased. How do I lose it w/o losing milk?
Avatar f tn My average healthy weight is 60kg and I'm 161cm tall, now I'm 75kg which is overweight. I just finished the 3rd month yesterday. Is there a way to lose weight without hurting the baby? Cuz it's not healthy for me to stay in this weight while I'll gain 12kg more while pregnancy. Nothing hard or hurtful, walking is hard here since I'm in saudi Arabia and the heat reach 40c. I'm looking for healthy diet that won't hurt the baby if I do it.
Avatar f tn Diet aids such as Releana are not the best way to lose weight. While you might lose a considerable amount of weight on it, which might be nice, the chances of gaining it all back, once you go off the med are extremely high. I can't think of anyone I've ever known, who would stick to such a "diet" for any length of time.
Avatar f tn She eats constantly, drinks a large amount of water but is losing weight and becoming weak. We already spent $200 trying to diagnose her ailment and I'm at a loss as to solutions. What do you recommend? Thanks.
1084115 tn?1385228589 I wish I could relate. I was hoping I would lose weight on treatment but I gained while taking INC. I did drop what weight I gained but now I am back where I started. If you want to gain weight add about 400 to 500 calories to what you already eat each day.... Add a high calorie protein shake or you could do like me and add a couple of scopes of Ben and Jerry's at night . Good luck with the rest of your treatment.
Avatar m tn i had also listen many sideffects about steroids.. so please help me which steroid is the best and safe for me to gain weight and muscles.
Avatar f tn Yes it's normal especially if ur on ur last month.. baby is swollowing the amniotic fluid. That's where the lost in weight comes from. We don't produce as much to replace it after a while cuz baby is getting ready for delivery.
1113101 tn?1294236810 However, if your dog is losing weight, then you need to take her to your veterinarian right away, since rapid weight loss can be a symptom of diabetes, cancer and other very serious diseases, unrelated to the Atopica. Additionally, dogs with Cushing's disease are prone to become diabetic, and the symptoms of diabetes and Cushing's are similar (increased water intake and urination). She needs recheck labwork immediately.
Avatar f tn Idk your not supposed to lose weight in pregnancy. I mean sOme ppl get really sick and help it but you really shouldn't lose just to lose. You should talk to your doctor about it.
Avatar m tn I do recall losing some weight while being on it before. Opinions anyone???
Avatar n tn Being more prone to bruising is a known side effect of steroids, however it is one that you should definitely notify your doctor about. He/she may need to adjust your dose a bit. It is possible to lose weight while on the steroids, although it's much more common to have weight gain due to either fluid retention or increased appetite - or both.
