I have been on steroids for 6 months and gained 30 lbs, does it stop?

Does the weight gain stop before I get off the steroids, or do I have to wait until I get off of them?

I thought I wouldn’t want food as badly when my doctor lowered my dose of steroids, but I was wrong. :frowning: I’ve heard when you get off the steroids, the pounds start coming off as well. Any insight would be great, Thanks!

BTW- I was taking, Dexamethasone- 4mg/day and now its down to 2mg/day.

Hi Kimberly. Talk to your doctor and see if a lower carb lifestyle might help. Everyone gains weight while on steroids.
