Weight loss/gain

 

Half of all patients with lupus have a loss of appetite (anorexia), with resulting weight loss.
Usually noted in the early stages of lupus, anorexia & weight loss are associated with disease activity.

Steroids cause weight gain.

 If your doctor has detected large amounts of protein in your urine, you have what is termed 'nephrotic syndrome'.
Seen in 15% of patients, this also results in weight gain.
