I am just getting off prednisone and my hands, ankles and legs are swollen and puffy. Is the med the cause?

I was on Prednisone & a couple other steroids when I was 19 for 2 yrs.because of ITP.It's a blood disorder.I finally had to have my spleen removed with cleared up the problem.My Plastlets are check yearly just as a caution.I had the moon face & swelling while on Pred.25mg a day............Ate like a pig too,lol.
