androgen weight gain

by Estelle
(Pretoria)

How can I reduce weight whilst using Androcur? Is there anything that I should cut out or down on in my diet? Was prescribed for hair loss an works very well-great improvement,but gained weight and can't get rid of it!

From Cari: Hi Estelle, I'm so sorry but this is beyond my expertise. Not being a medical doctor I'm really not sure how Androcur affects the body, but there are many medications that do have weight gain as a side effect. I would imagine that depending on which hormones it's affecting the recipe for weight loss would be different. For example - does it increase your appetite and make you eat more? Does it increase water retention which makes you feel bloated and heavy? etc....
