@tinaesims… Yes! My doctor says it's the steroids and hormones. I'm 71 and had constant lung infections over 5 years until I got a clear diagnosis of NTM and bronchiectisis and started sleeping upright to reduce acid reflux. I take 3 asthma meds in the nebulizer twice a day. I have PPIs and Zantac by prescription and special diet.I have hypothyroidism, too.
I went on many doctor approved diet and exercise programs and I gained weight. I eat very little and gain weight
.I've tried fasting and get low blood sugar trouble.
Finally Ive gone on the intermittent fasting diet that allows tea and coffee with cream or butter in fasting hours. It's called "Cruise control". No more drop in blood sugar and the weight is creeping off a few ounces a day. I lost 9 pounds in 5 weeks. It's Keto so I can only stay on it for three months.
I recommend getting thyroid levels checked first, then take a look at various fasting regimens.
I know how discouraging it is to have your weight out of your control. Don't give up! New solutions to our problems are being developed every day.
