Hello...I am new to this group. My leukocytoclastic vasculitis was diagnosed in october 2017.I started predenisolone 55 mg per day and reduced gradually. Now I am having it at the rate of 7.5 mg per day. I was 55kg before starting it and now I'm 72 kg. In addition to this, I got a shocking transformation to my face that no one could identify me! I was a vegetarian and a less eater before and now I am a big foodie. Doctor says that these are temporary and I will get my old face and body after stopping drugs. Does anybody have the same situation like me? And how did you manage this? Waiting for replies.
