Two weeks after stopping advair I lost 5 pounds mostly in the face and a little in the stomach. Then I realized that I had a yeast infection (not the usual sypmtons) and immediately started a sugar/starch/carb-free diet and went on an anti-candida natural meds cure. The diet was not easy at first because everything has sugar in it. But I started buying my own veggies and meat, cooking enough at night so we had leftovers for lunch and I did start imrpoving and lost another 6 pounds off my stomach within six weeks. I backslid and felt it, and went back on the diet. I'm eating more calories now but I'm still losing. Reading the anti-candida (yeast infection)websites helped me and I know that it will take from 3 months to a year to recover from the imbalance that advair has caused in my body. After 8 weeks I've lost 15 pounds and I feel my immune system is starting to work again because minor scars from cuts and bee stings have started to heal and fade after 2 years of not healing!!!! My finger/toe nails are also going back to normal. My husband's toe fungus cleared up in four days after going on the same regimen with me (apparently you can pass a yeast imbalance to your partner over time...they probably won't have as bad a case of it because their immune systems haven't been comprimised by advair or other steroids). I also take glucosamine and a high potency multivitamin with minerals without added sugars /starch/etc. which most pharmacies carry and eat lots of fresh garlic from the farmer's market.
Read as much as you can and remember that it takes time to loose weight and build a healthy immune system... But throught this process I have learned a lot: the yeast infection was actually causing my newly developed food and chemical/perfume allergies....so controling the yeast imbalance is helping me with those allergies... I can actually be around people with perfume on again without feeling like I am having a stroke. My allergist in Plattsburgh NY never told me about this connection, he said some people just are sensitive. Boy, now I know, if a doctor doesn't answer my questions , I'll find one who is willing to and can.
Hang in there everyone and find a doctor who will help you and not dismiss your side affects/problems.
