weak from prednisone

i have been off prednisone for 3 weeks and still am weak in the gym;i was only on the prednisone for 12 days. when will my strength come back;i am getting a bit nervous;is this permanant?
thanks

No this isn’t permanent, however prednisone suppresses adrenal function, which in turn causes suppression of many body systems. One example that comes to mind is insulin sensitivity is decreased. Wish I could go into this more now but I am studying for exams so can’t. Good luck! I recomend you keep a very clean diet and be patient! P-22

thanks for the response;i appreciate it.
