I'm 35 and I have chronic ITP . My first case was 20 years ago. I am about to start on my Prednisone taper: 60mg/ week 1- then I will be tapering down for the next 2 weeks.

When I was 16 I gained alot of weight on PREDNISONE- and am looking for tips on how to manage my lifestyle this time to avoid such weight gain.

I read some on low carb diet to illiminate insulin spikes?

Any advise on "MOON FACE"?
