Our expert says:
I would reckon that your weight gain is more probably due to your hormone replacement therapy and not the vit B injection or the cortisone. All female hormone treatments can either cause weight gain or loss. Discuss this problem with your prescribing dr as there may be an alternative hormone tablet you can take. You can also try the DASH Diet which was developed to lower bp and should help with weight loss and high cholesterol. Click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'Food as medicine' and 'Hypertension' and get a copy of the DASH Diet.
Keep up the good work with the exercise increasing how fast and long you walk if the dr give permission.
