Hi there - I have had Crohns for a few years now and I know that the Prednisone causes you to gain weight and it retains water. It also makes you very hungry and so you want to eat all the time.... try to watch what you are eating in this case. Never fear though, when you get off it...it takes about a month or so - but you will see you weight go down and your body shape go back to normal. The biggest thing is to try not to gain too much while on it. It is a nasty drug with many side effects - but unfortunately we need it to heal. Take care
