Hi everyone, I’m new here after being diagnosed with PMR 2 months ago. Thanks for all the great advice and tips you share, it makes such a difference!
I read a post this morning about weight gain and liver function and I am really struggling with an increased appetite and massive weight gain (over a stone already). I am going to restrict carbs as suggested but am wondering what effect alcohol plays on the liver with PMR. I usually enjoy a bottle of wine with my husband over dinner but recently have been having an aperitif beforehand too so now worrying if this is causing damage to my liver. I do have some alcohol free days each week so wouldn’t want you all to think that I have a problem. I also don’t want to appear shallow on my first post but a drink or two is what is helping me through at the moment.
I am currently on 20mg of Pred after coming down from 30mg two weeks ago and am due to drop to 15mg at the end of the month.
Any advice would be most welcome
