I was on prednisone for severe crohns disease back in 2014. I was put on a very high dose of prednisone for 2 whole years!!! I went from 126 lbs all the way up to 217 lbs. I was finally able to pull off the drug for about a year and a half now and it has really messed up my body. I ended up with having hip surgery at the age of 26 because the steroids eroded my hip joints. Has anyone struggled with trying to get their weight down at all? I was given metformin for my PCOS but my weight won't go down. Can steroids alter your thyroid? I'm just over being obese. Thank you! I hope I'm not alone with this one...
