I am considered of average weight.
For some strange reason, when I am not well, I actually gain weight. I have read that either weight loss or weight gain is possible - though I can't remember where.

I have managed to remain at a stable weight despite meds but have not managed to lose the extra I had from being ill. Over my first year out of remission it crept steadily up to 8 kilos (sorry all you llbs and stone people) heavier. On pred I gained another two (for one year of pred now).

I think my main worry is I used to be very active and I really can't be right now but I definitely gain rather than lose if flaring.
