Dear Chokky
If you are being treated with Imuran and Meiicorten which can cause weight gain, then I would recommend that you consult a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), to assist you with an individual diet prescription that also takes your medical condition into account. This is not something that I can do for you over the Internet, because your condition may exclude the use of certain aspects of slimming such as daily exercise, etc.
I do hope that you will soon be feeling much better and that the dietitian will be able to prevent your weight gain.
Best regards
