How much prednisone are you taking? When I was first diagnosed, they put me on prednisone and I ended up with an appetite like pavarotti -- I ate probably half a dozen doughnuts in one sitting (which was NOT a good idea) ... is it possible you could switch medications? Prednisone is not a good long-term drug for most people, so your doctor will probably switch you soon anyhow. Best, CH
