Corticosteroid side effects may cause weight gain, water retention, flushing (hot flashes), mood swings or insomnia, and elevated blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. Any numbness or mild muscle weakness usually resolves within 8 hours in the affected arm or leg (similar to the facial numbness experienced after dental work). Patients who are being treated for chronic conditions (., heart disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis) or those who cannot temporarily discontinue anti-clotting medications should consult their personal physician for a risk assessment.
Sticking To A Vegetarian Diet Plan. And Doing Mild Exercises Made Me Lose 6 KGs In A 5 Months Period, Following A Dose Of 20 MG Of Steroid. Before That I Gained 17 KGs. So I Started Drinking Mainly Water And Fruit Juice With No Added Sugar. Along With That, I Followed A Vegetarian Diet. When Ever I Feel Like Eating Meat, I Eat Fish And Mushroom. I Ate No Oily Food And No Sugary Foods. Not Even Salty. I Did Not Face Any Medical Problems. Still Following The Same Plan Hoping To Achieve My Weight Loss (Maintaining) Goal..... Hope This Helps.... ( May Not Work With Higher Dose Of Steroids)
