Became fat, unshaped, hair loosing after INHALERS for wheezing.

Resolved Question:

Hi Doctor,

I am 28 years old boy, i was born in 1987.

when i was small i had wheezing. i had been using some inhalers and some prescribed tablets from 1998 to 2003 under the advise of qualified doctor.

however i no more have wheezing.

but now i have below problems,

my whole body became fat and unshaped
less physical strength end endurance
hair loosing (baldness)
my musels are not hard as usually we can see in men, but they are soft and sagging.
small genital and small testicals - less sexual ability

can this be because of the huge medicine doses i had during 1998 to 2003? because it was my growing age.

i think all my growing was misdirected by these medicine, is it correct?

also i feel that i have an unbalance of hormone in my body because of the vitamins given by the doctor.
( I remember he gave me some vitamins to grow my chest )

are there any thing can i do to rectify these bad side effects now? any tests you can recommend me to find what the problem is?

Thank you for your query at
I understand your concern.
Is it possible that you were prescribed steroids for the wheezing problem?
Excessive steroids can lead to such problems like gynaecomastia, fat deposition in the body, loss of secondary sexual characters, purple striae in the abdomen, testicular atrophy.
I will suggest you get your corticosteroid levels evaluated and we can decide the management based on that. All the symptoms are suggestive of high steroid levels that was given to you during your childhood.
Hope this was helpful,
