Colon problems weight gain

Common Questions and Answers about Colon problems weight gain


Avatar n tn Weight gain can appear due to thyroid problems. Hypothyroidism which can be weight gain reason gives also tiredness, sleepiness, hair fall, dry skin, and constipation. I suggest you start with thyroid tests. If you have also leg swelling, heart function, kidneys function and veins condition should be checked. The larger abdomen should be checked with an ultrasound or CT (if colon cancer was the surgery reason, you should have abdomen CT every year for the first 3 years). Hope this will help.
Avatar f tn This along with anemia can cause unexplained weight gain. Adrenal gland problems are the other cause. Cushing’s syndrome should be looked for. The kidney function too should be assessed. Late night snacking and poor sleep too can cause weight gain. Polycystic ovary too causes weight gain, hence has to be ruled out by an ultrasound of abdomen. Certain medications like antidepressants cause weight gain.
Avatar m tn Apart from the medication, weight gain can be due to several causes. Also BP can rise up due to many causes. You would need to run tests like kidney function, liver function, lipid profile, thyroid, adrenal gland function, heart problems etc. You would need to eat healthy, exercise regularly as advised by cardiologist, maintain cholesterol and lipids under control. Common causes like overeating, lack of exercise, diabetes, hypothyroidism have to be ruled out in your case.

Avatar f tn A woman's metabolism changes during pregnancy, and not all weight gain is baby or fat a lot it could be water weight too. But weight gain shouldn't affect your ability to have a vaginal birth. If the doctor is not concerned by your gain then medically you have no reason to be concerned. The question will just be your comfort/confidence after birth, and there is no way of know how easy/difficult it will be to get back to what you personally want to be at.
Avatar n tn I think that you should keep taking the laxative if it's working for ya. I'm not sure about the weight gain, because when I had slow transit constipation, I lost over 50 lbs.
Avatar n tn Can those to associated with stomach problems too? And, regarding your comments about weight gain and distension. I thought I read one time, that highly compressed gas in the abdomen can cause weight gain too. Because as my stomach gets more distended, I'll gain around two pounds and the abdomen is hard, not sloshy from water. And my doc said it wasn’t water. Finally, if the stomach, why would I have symptoms, yet show nothing on the endoscopy?
Avatar f tn Before I got pregnant with my second child I weight 114 last week I weigh 152 thats 38 pounds I gain thats alot.. Im 36cweeks 2 days... Is it true u gain more weight when is a girl? What can I do to loose all that weight besides breastfeeding? After having my bby.
Avatar f tn Having your gallbladder removed does not equate to weight gain. If people gain weight after gallbladder surgery, it's because they are finally able to eat normally again. Sometimes people go overboard on the food with successful gallbladder surgery. "Successful" meaning that all symptoms are resolved. Your ejection fraction is so low that it means your gallbladder isn't doing much of anything. Sometimes it's due to stones.
Avatar m tn ve got self-esteem issues with my weight, really just tired of being skinny, looking ill all the time etc, so I started a weight gain diet. It worked slightly, as I gained like 6 pounds in 2 or 3 days. After having an upset stomach, I paused my diet, and overnight, I lost the 6 pounds. I recently tried this again, gained 6 pounds in a few days, and lost it all overnight. I lose the weight, get back down to 112, and it doesn't go up or down, always 112lbs. My appetite also waxens and weans.
Avatar n tn Late night snacking and poor sleep too can cause weight gain. Polycystic ovary (in females) too causes weight gain, hence has to be ruled out by an ultrasound of abdomen. Certain medications like antidepressants cause weight gain. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
Avatar n tn You should be fine. Some loose it the beginning of their pregnancy and some gain it. But you'll gain weight as you get farther along. I'm 6 months 3 days and I barley gained 17 pounds. But at my 3 months I still hadnt gained anything..

Avatar m tn Hello, My husband (age 68) has heart surgery in March 2012, then had a TIA and wasn't able to swallow any food or water. The surgeon put in a trachea and a J tube in him (could not put G tube in because colon is in front of stomach) and he had this in him for two months. After the tube was removed, of coarse he was bound to lose weight from being on a liquid diet for 2 months. He had the trachea removed and the J tube removed in June 2012 and gradually continued to lose weight.

627145 tn?1230305626 When I was really sick wih Ulcerative Colitis 12 years ago and needed do gain weight, the doctors had me add a tablespoon of vegetable oil to my boost/ensure. Also, they suggested eating macadamia nuts (which are really fattening) and peanut butter. If your digestive track can't handle the nuts, maybe try the oil. Good luck!
Avatar m tn Uncontrolled diabetes can result in inability to gain weight and fatigue. However, there can also be other causes for this, such as thyroid, anemia, etc. This is also something that should be discussed with your doctor. Please give us more information.
