Losing weight while on steroids

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 f tn I was wondering if any of you have successfully lost weight or stayed the same while pregnant. They only thing I plan on doing as far as losing weight is to eat healthy foods and not to overeat like I tend to do and to also excercise. 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!!!

400099 tn?1282954864 Having a 256 while on steroids and post-meal is expected. It will come back down within a few days after you stop you last dose of steroids. So, don't be too alarmed about it. But, like you docotr said, keep an eye on it. I used to not get eleveated sugars when I was taking steroids, but now it happens every time I take them.
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 n tn I decided to start weight watchers. You can actually lose weight on it without exercising if you follow the program. Maybe not as fast as someone else exercising, but it can be done. I did it 2 years ago and lost 20 lbs in 6 months (slow but sure!) and kept it off until this year.
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 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.
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 f tn Yes it's normal to lose weight while pregnant. I lost weight the first trimester and my doctor didn't worry as long as baby is growing. Just eat healthy and stay active! !

Avatar n tn I was born 3 months premature and was put on breathing steroids when i was younger, which my dad said made me gain weight like crazy . My doctors say that since I was premature that my metabolism hasn't kicked in yet. I think they're insane. I need to know a way to start losing weight because, in my eyes, I look absolutely disgusting, and it's affecting my health. So, if anyone has a way to lose weight and keep it off please let me know.

478429 tn?1265244387 Sick of meds to get preggo again... and off all meds except vitamins. I need some advice on losing the weight at about 1 1/2 to 2 Ibs a week... I NEED TO STAY MOTIVATED!!! We have a treadmill but after about a week on it, it hurts my knees, we also have an ab lounger, gazelle and stationary bike. I think I may try to find my rollerblades and break those out.... Oh, who knows! I'm starting either tomorrow or def. Monday..... My current weight is about 165 and I'm 5'5"...
9624973 tn?1413016130 I had a similar situation a couple of months ago when I needed to take Amoxicillin to avoid some infections after dental surgery (required because I have a neck surgery that could also see infection after dental surgery). I literally gained 20lbs in 2 weeks after I took it. The good news is, my AST & ALT did not flare up so I was ok.... but I'm almost certain the antibiotics caused some fatty liver and caused me to gain weight when I was on the track losing it.
