belly/thigh weight

Dr informed me Im now in menopause and that is why i have weight gain in my stomach and thighs. He also said my metabolism has slowed. I was also on prednisone for six months, off now five. Any advice would be appreciated.

He stated my thyroid is fine, my estrogen is low.

HI,
Your weight gain can be attributed to prednisone that you have taken. Menopause need not always mean weight gain. A healthy lifestyle, dietary modification and regular exercise can help tide over the menopause comfortable and also keep weight in check. BMR or basal metabolic rate can be increased by regular exercise.
Hope this helps.
