I believe that mkl11's questions are good ones. I was only on Humira for 3 months but I was on Remicade for almost 3 years. I lost weight while on the anti-TNFs. I believe I lost weight because I could eat a wider variety of foods, especially fruits and vegetables, plus my joint pain was relieved so much I could be more active.
Often when people start Humira or Remicade and get positive results [ie. a reduction in pain, diarrhea, hoint pain, etc] they enjoy being able to eat more without the negative impact.
Then again, there was a study that showed weight gain as a side effect of Remicade. I would imagine the same results would be found from Humira since they act so much a like.
