I have been on 8 mg Pred. for 3 weeks now - down from 60 mg 12 months ago. I'm stable, without withdrawal or side effects. BUT – how do I get rid of my Buffalo Hump ? It’s even worse, if that were possible, than my belly fat, and that’s bad enough. I’d love to be able to stand upright again, but this back fat just gets in the way. My diet is good (basically Paleo) and my weight normal. I don’t have excess fat anywhere else other than my trunk. Maybe I’m being impatient and have to get off Pred altogether first ?! My cumulative Pred. dose is now in excess of 8,500 mg. and I plan to reduce to 7.5 mg in 2 weeks time.
