I am relatively new to this site Hi everyone and was diagnosed with Crohns and Sacroiliitis December 07 though I think I had it for years earlier. I am weaning off Prednisone at them moment and I am on 6MP. I will be completely off Pred in 4 weeks and counting. I have gained so much weight on the Prednisone that to add everything that comes with Crohns I also feel like a fat slob.

Is this common, will the weight shift when I am off the prednisone or will I have to work extra hard to lose it. Any one with experience to share here I am grateful.


PS Out of curiosity where is everyone from, I am from Australia.

As crazy as this sounds, I actually dropped weight while on Prednisone, I am now on Humira, and I feel like I am putting the pounds on.
