Treatment for weight gain due to use of steroids
Weight gain is one of the most common side effects of steroids usage. Many patients want to reduce the side effects by reducing dosage of steroids. It maybe helpful but should do it under your doctor’s supervision.
Meanwhile, pay attention to the diet you are on. Limit fluid intake is the first step. How much you can drink is calculated by your caregiver, according to your dry weight and amount of urine output.
Treatment for weight gain due to swelling
Large amount of protein leakage causes fluid-retention, leading to swelling in hands, face, feet, ankle or even the lungs. Weight gains because many fluid builds up inside your body.
To deal with this condition, you may need hypertensive drugs to reduce proteinuria or diuretics to increase urine output.

The above methods are helpful but cannot solve the underlying problems. The key to dealing with this issue is to improve kidney function. As long as kidneys can work normally, patients need no steroids and excess fluid can be excreted by kidneys as urine.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is recommended. They can purify the blood and increase blood circulation so that kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair renal tissues. Then, kidney function is improved and all symptoms can be completely relieved.
