Side effects from 60 mg Prednisone for vasculitis how to offset side effects?

I was diagnosed with Lupus 14 years ago and now suffer from Vasculitis with survive hemoptysis (lung bleeding).. I am treated with chemotherapy and a dose of 60mg every day for a month and then taper down by 10 every 2 weeks. I had to take prednisone before and knew that the weight gain and drastic change of appearance with come with it but I was hoping besides not to eat and of course eat the right stuff, that I would find additional hope and tips here. I could not find any answers on this website only questions and was hoping to get some directions. I have tried: To drastically reduce food intake but the body changes anyways, the buffalo neck and the pancake face seems to keep up one me again. I think it was caused by: I do not know. I have other side effects too which I did not experience the times before. Like extreme skin sensitivity pain on my lung.
