Patient :Hi, I am a 13 year old boy who 2 years ago received a BMT. All was going good until 8 months ago when EI got some chronic graph vs host disease. I got put on prednisone for this and have gained 30 pounds since. However, I am Tapering now and down to 25mg every other day, I was at 50mg per day at my worst. How low does my dose need to get before I start to loose the weight? And how fast will the weight go away? Thanks for the advice.
