Thanks again for the posts. I've been following most of them, especially regarding the side effects of prednisone and weight gain. I am on 60 mg and hope to start tapering in 2 weeks. Unfortunately I still have occasional GCA and PMR symptoms which are most prominent at the end of the day and night. The scariest is of course the head ache, jaw pain and ear aches.
Back to moon face. Apparently all my fat wants to shift from my arms and legs to my neck and face. I have been adjusting my diet, yet it seems I need to be more aggressive. I've decided to go with the "no carbs" and "lower calories" approach as most of you recommended. There are several names, pretty much the same diet. I maybe fighting a losing battle and will just have to accept the "moon face" for a couple of years. Yet, I still want to try. If anyone had any success reversing the moon face while on prednisone, I would love to hear your story.
I meet with my GP today and will discuss with her as well as Chronic Fatigue. I know I can't do much about the fatigue as I am early on in this illness and still learning to adjust. I pretty much slept through the weekend as I had such bad insomnia before.
I will keep you posted on my progress. I have never been good at adjusting my eating habits. I love to cook and eat!
Wishing everybody a good day or night!
