I have tried researching what Pred. does to the metabolism but can't find any info.
I was on high protein low carb liquid diet for about 1 week. Lost 10 lbs which I know was water weight. I developed really bad edema since taking pred.
The next two weeks I added 1 meal a day to the two shakes. Lost 6 lbs.
The next three weeks added 2 meals to one shake a day. My meals are low carb high protein and fairly low calories (under 300) The only snacking I do is fresh veggies.
I have had no weight loss in 3 weeks on 1200 calories a day. That simply doesn't make sense to me. The only thing I can think is my metabolism is being compromised either by the pred. the PMR or yet another disorder. I hate to go in search of another dr. to see if there is something underlying causing this.
I am on 12&1/2 mg of prednisone.
Any thoughts would sure be appreciated.
Have the best PMR day possible.
