I also noticed the weight gain. It almost looks like He may be taking Prednisone for some illness. I too hope that he is okay. I'm a big fan.

Word is that it is sarcoidosis and oral corticosteroids ARE a possible treatment.

I believe folks are concerned about Brother Mac. I donít think the questions about the obvious weight gain, more like puffiness, are not out of criticism but out of concern. Bernie Mac is a true artist and his fans love him. Some of us need to keep it real and recognize that people do genuinely care.

I have been wondering if Bernie Mac was ill, also. I haven't seen his program on the Friday night slot at 8:00(East Coast) in a long time. The reruns are on daily but I wondered if he was sick and had to discontinue filming the show. He is a comic genius. I pray he is recovering if he has been sick.

I have recently read that Bernie Mac has Sarcoidosis which is a rare autoimmune disease that usually affects the lungs, but can affect any organ in your body. Prednisone is a very common treatment for sarcoidosis and causes weight gain and water retention in the face. I was diagnosed with sarcoidosis and applaud Bernie Mac for coming forward to let others know more about the disease since very few people have heard of it or understand it since it is a disease that does not show on the outside. I wish him all the best of luck with his Bernie Mac Foundation which he plans to create this summer.

I am glad that Bernie Mac is well and active, in spite of the fact that sarcoid has attempted to interrupt his career. I learned about his diagnosis in April 2004. I can only say to him that this is serious and we are blessed to be here. I was diagnosed in April 2002 and lost an aunt to sarcoid in 1998, without warning. Good Luck Bernie, I wish you the best!

IT IS CORRECT HE IS ON PREDINISONE FOR TREATMENT OF SARCOIDOSIS. AND IT MAKES YOU BLOW UP. I HAVE THE SAME DISEASE AND SOMETIME FLAIR UPS ARE HARD TO BOUNCH BACK FROM.

Sad to hear this, I thought he looked like he was in some type of treatment.

The Mac Man is in our prayers, he is a gift from God to all of us fans--may he recover and stay well!
