Re: Addison's and weight gain
Although there are a lot of people with Addison's that exercise and keep their weight under control, I am not one of them. I gained about as much weight as you have, and even though I lost a lot before I was diagnosed, I am still too fat. For one thing, make sure you are taking the MINIMUM dose of steroids that you need to keep your disease under control (I take 20 mg total of Cortef). I get almost no exercise because I don't have the desire or energy for it, so I'm afraid I'm just stuck being fat. Better luck to you.
