It was bad enough to be diagnosed with PMR a few years ago and to put on the weight with the Prednisone I have to take. I have osteoporosis now and just this week got to add diabetes onto the list. I have gained about 50 lbs in the 3 years thanks to the Prednisone. Please, my fellow PMR sufferers, don't let it get the best of you. Don't give in or give up! You don't want any more than you have to have.
