Will Steroid Back Injections Cause You To Gain Weight
Possibly: Weight gain is usually from you eating more (steroids can cause you to be hungry), water weight gain (usually self limiting) and possible fat deposition if your own steroid production is halted (again self limited and takes more than one injection). There is no muscle growth that takes place, these are not those type of steroids. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Can i gain weight if I have cortisone injections for trochanteric hip bursitis last option as in so much pain but don't want to gain any more weight ?
No: The injection you will receive for troch bursitis will have steroids in it more than likely, but the single dose given locally does not normally have much systemic effect at all. If you were diabetic you may note a small spike in your sugars, but it should not cause any longer systemic effects like weight gain. Hope this helps and feel better soon! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Bio identical hormones should also be discussed if you're a candidate. ...Read more

Nope: There is 0 good re Anabolic steroids from a medical perspective. You can't expect wght loss from them alone. The idea is, if you build up muscles (pro athletes have proven you can (illegally) on a. Steroids), the muscles will burn the calories that you eat, so you won't get fat. But you have to get the muscles first. Fat athletes are rare. Get big muscles, stop eating, then wght loss. But hunger. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A verterinarian told me they give B12 injections to animals to gain weight? Why then are B12 injections given to lose weight in humans?
No wt loss w/B12: I can't speak for veterinary medicine as I am not a veterinarian. However, as a family physician, i can assure you that i don't give B12 injections to cause weight loss in humans as there is no such link between the two. In other words, taking B12 whether as a shot or pill will not lead to weight loss. If you're low in b12, you may need B12 pills or shots, but that won't cause weight loss. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not advised. ...Read more
