Ok iv never gone beyond 20mg on prednisolone and am currently on between 5mg to 7.5mg with minor knee pains (great to handle) im currently 9 stone and 5 pounds have always been that weight but my mum says im putting on weight im wondering if shes being mean because shes large herself  my fiance says im the same like i was before lupus but anyway what i want to no is there any special excersises for lupus patients do i need to be cautious or can i do any excersise because i feel like i need to lose weight.
 
P.S. Being on steriods can make you appear bigger but how long do you have to be on them before you see a change in yourself iv been on them since june 2012 but have tapered them down to 5mg i dont have a moonface i dont want to put on weight iv always been size 8 uk size but seem to be launching upto sie 10.

Miss Lupus you wont/shouldnt have any weight gain on 5/7.5 mg pred.My son was on intravenous steroids then 60 mg a day oral pred,he put weight on,but they saved his life!! As for exercise ask to be referred to physio they will show you correct exercises,depending on which joints are affected without putting strain on them.Paul
