    Only when I’m on prednisone! I think it would be so hard to determine whether weight gain is a treatment side effect or just your body “leveling out” to normal when in remission, since so many lose weight when flaring.

    When I got into remission, I finally gained back all the weight I lost. I remember at my recent appointment with my GI, he mentioned imagining just how many calories I was burning when I was still sick just to keep up and continue to produce all of the inflammation in my body, now that I'm better and don't have so much going but I'm still eating the same or more, I gained weight. Although I think many can agree, this weight gain (going from barely 90 to 140) is a mark of achievement and a symbol of my survival!
