Thank you for posting your query.
Weight gain is related to over eating or doing less exercises. Regarding multiple sclerosis (MS), it may contribute to weight gain. Firstly, steroids used for treating acute episodes of MS may lead to weight gain. Secondly, MS may lead to weakness of legs and fatigue, which can limit the ability to exercise.
In general, the steps to weight loss are same in MS patients and those that do not have MS.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
