Over the past year, I have lost substantial muscle tone. Strength remains ok but significant change is hardness of muscles though my diet and workout routine remain the same. I stopped finasteride and continue to loss muscle tone. Have had blood work and other tests all negative. Any suggestions
william mcniff on Nov, 20, 2012:
No one lost muscle tissue/weight during or after the BMT????Really??? I lost 75lbs during and after my BMT. 205 to 130lbs. I have no muscle mass at all.
It has been over 4 years since my transplant and I still cannot rebuild the lost muscle. This is with
testosterone shots weight training BCAA Whey protein
creatine etc etc etc.
I find it hard to believe muscle wasting did not occur with other patients.
From this study (2 years ago):
in 1993, diagnosis of mild auto-immune hepatits which after menopause in about 2004, worsened with limited response to treatment. In 2009, liver transplant required and received. Post transplant, tripe immuno suppresssion therapy required, which has side effects particularly prednisone which has triggered diabetes, avascular necrosis, urinary tract infection, cholesterol, easy bruising, fragile skin, malakoplaquia weak muscles and osteopoenia. Maybe fatigue too.
