Avatar n tn I think it's great to exercise on treatment if you can however exhaustive exercise like that required for a Marathon doesn't seem like a good idea to me. Your liver is stressed by that kind of exercise. It takes awhile for your liver to recover from a stressful event like that plus you are trying to allow your liver to heal so stresful events like that are working against your goal. Extensive exercise can raise your ALT meaurements, something you are working to keep down.
649848 tn?1534637300 Ok - I have a question. I see posts where some of you spend an hour or more daily on your exercise routine. I think that's great if you have that much time every day. I usually don't!! For example, this past week I had to work 10 hr days beginning at 5:00 am and ending at 3:30 pm. In order to get to work by 5:00 am, it was necessary for me to get up at 2:45 am, which meant that I had to go to bed no later than 6:30 pm in order to get enough sleep.
233488 tn?1310696703 Nevertheless, daily and less strenuous exercise remains one of the most important facets of getting and staying healthy. Regular exercise and high levels of physical fitness are linked to lower risks for cardiovascular diseases and improved life expectancy. Four decades ago Thomas Bassler, MD, an American physician, reasoned that if some exercise was good more had to be better, and famously hypothesized that marathon running confers immunity against coronary plaque buildup and heart attacks.
Avatar m tn Dietary guidelines suggest about 46 grams of protein a day for adult women and 56 grams for adult men, which amounts to about 0.8 grams of protein/kg of body weight per day. A study published in the journal Clinical Nutrition also recommended higher protein intakes to help counteract the progressive loss of muscle mass and strength in older adults.
Avatar f tn I don't recommend weight loss aids such as that, because they usually don't work, but even if they do, the weight is usually regained as soon as the weight loss aid is discontinued. It's also not healthy to lose weight quickly. Making lifestyle changes you can stick with is much better.
Avatar n tn I think maybe because most of the pressure is put onto the legs, not the back and bottom. I usually sit on an exercise ball in my office, I have done it for years--but if you have never sat on one, you might not want to try it for the first time with your broken tailbone, just because I would hate to hear that you fell off trying! Good luck--I feel like I'm still a long ways in recovery, but glad it happened to me not my elder mother-in-law-- it happen on a faulty step.
612551 tn?1450025775 We have taken, for the time, a foster small dog that had been in a no-kill shelter for about a year, and while he had exercise walks, he was most of the time in a confinement area, one we didn't see. They bring dogs out based on their list, potential adopters do not tour the dog holding facility. So, the little guy we brought home, about 15 pounds and perhaps 5 years old, has to be trained to deal with a home environment including toilet training.
700223 tn?1318169294 But aside from the hormonal change in women as they go through menopause, the risk factors are risks for men as well as women. Men are also at risk if they have low levels of the hormone testosterone. Your bones don't reach their greatest density until you are about 30 years old, so for children and people younger than 30, anything that helps increase bone density will have long-term benefits. If you're older than 30, it's still not too late to make these lifestyle changes.

Avatar n tn Im a 26 woman, very healthy, and very active in work and exercise routines. I have always had a sexual appetite since I was younger, engaging in Masterbation since I was 10 or 11. Its been A routine every day or every other day to get off, since about the age of 16. Now I find myself having to relief myself everyday sometimes 2-3 a day because I have a strong sexual desire to come. It's Not that I think about sex with many different people or sex all the time like a sex addict.
Avatar f tn Motivation may differ by gender, and women appear to have a harder time. In one study, weight loss was the greatest motivator to exercise for women, and muscle tone was the primary motivator for men. Unfortunately, effects on appearances may take a long time to show, discouraging people from continuing an exercise program even though their health is improving.
Avatar m tn Rice with chicken, or more wraps for dinner I intake these things on a regular day, as well as 6-10 bottles [500mL] of water [no other liquids] and i excersize every other day [except that i go for very long walks at night usually an hour long] for my regular excersize i do i 30 minute video of pilaties and currently i only see results when i stand up straight, i am not obese i am just over weight, i weigh 222 pounds and i am six foot one tall.
Avatar m tn Some people do maintain exercise routines but many just have to accept that they are debiltated and go with the flow.
Avatar n tn Interesting comments, especially regarding the "exercises". It make sense - as they say, "use it or lose it". I've heard similar advice given to men, the theory being that regular "exercise" will help to ward-off prostate problems. So far I haven't had any problems with dryness, but I'll keep the Pure Romance lubricant in mind if it becomes an issue.
Avatar m tn I can think of a couple dozen patients that benefited from DHEA for muscle strength and size when added to there current exercise routines. It is worth a try in my humble opinion. Now, with regards to your second comment about aching muscles; I do not know your routine or frequency but here are a couple of basic guidelines that my professional trainer gave me.
Avatar m tn -low sugar (cranberry juice) intake -high fiber diet (or metamucil-like supplements) for diabetes control (ONLY if you're doing all the right things not mentioned here; googled) The exercise (running, walking) and staying hydrant will "turn down" acid levels in your blood by "turning-up" your oxygen levels, opening up your veins/arteries and if no blockage (high cholesterol) is present, will begin to emit results.
Avatar f tn I never had an eating problem, and felt my portion sizes when eating were not over indulging. Granted my exercise routines has suffered since my back surgery but the weight gain has taken on a very draining effect on me. I've read the Peak article and viewed the video as you suggested; maybe I need to invest in a bow-flex type machine for starters, and see where it takes me. I am just a very unhappy person right now.
Avatar m tn Everything Circa said is correct, you could use some major changes. Just one thing to add, please be sure to discuss any new exercise routines with your doctor before starting. You can do this, make some changes and see what your numbers look like, just retest within 6 months.
Avatar n tn Perhaps changing your calorie intake and changing the exercise routines might help. As for the Lipitor, an Internet search shows Common Side Effects as headache, constipation, diarrhea, gas, upset stomach and stomach pain, rash and muscle and joint pain. Serious side effects are muscle problems and liver problems. I didn't see anything that relates to the inability to lose weight.
Avatar n tn Feel of your shoulders and if they've got knots in them, well, you're going to have to do some stretching routines on a regular basis, to release the muscles, and your headaches will go away. As for a possible neurological basis for all this, like your brain is in a tangle because you've burst a blood vessel or you have a tumor, the odds are very small on account of your age.
921323 tn?1268679412 I think the HCG Diet is a bad idea for at least three reasons. 1) Supplementation with HCG has not been proven to be effective as compared to placebo. Multiple double-blind placebo controlled studies have not demonstrated a beneficial effect. Not much else to say about this. It just doesn’t work. Please note - I am not talking about the prolonged and severe calorie restriction that accompanies it. That works just fine. It just isn’t healthy. See #2.
Avatar n tn The body fat percentage necessary to reveal a cut torso varies according to your genes and body type, but for most men, a percentage of 6 to 8 percent will reveal abs, while for women require a percentage of about 11 to 13 percent. To reduce body fat, reduce calories below what you burn daily, which can be determined by finding your basal metabolic rate. A 250- to 500- deficit daily will lead to a 1/2- to 1-pound weight loss in a week.
1007653 tn?1259389567 77 gram of daily protein per pound of body weight. That's 139 grams for a 180-pound man. Men who work out 5 or more days a week for an hour or longer need 0.55 gram per pound. And men who work out 3 to 5 days a week for 45 minutes to an hour need 0.45 gram per pound. So a 180-pound guy who works out regularly needs about 80 grams of protein a day. Now, if you're trying to lose weight, protein is still crucial.
167426 tn?1254089835 Studies have shown that eating more vegetables can help you maintain brain power. Establish routines. Pick a certain place for commonly lost objects and put them there each time. Try to keep the same daily schedule. Don't try to multi-task. Focus on one thing at a time. Track your memory problems. Keep a diary of when you experience problems and the events that are going on at the time. (You might track this in your planner.
Avatar m tn That's not a lot but for me it is. This lasted until mid February when I went to see the Doctor for a regular check up. The irregular PSVT beats have gone back to their (for me normal) pattern, which is every now and then. My Doctor wanted to put on a ZIO patch for two weeks. I had the ZIO patch on for two weeks and got the results back a few days ago. Out of the two week period only one thing concerned my Doctor, a 3 second pause in my heart beat. This only happened once.
Avatar m tn Anxiety is a crazy thing. Men who stray from a woman they do love for instant gratification of ego and genitals put themselves into terrible internal conflict, stress and anxiety. This stress on the body weakens immune systems, changes the diet to more comfort foods, disrupts health and exercise routines. And now you look at yourself more critically. Things that cam and went without a second thought now seemingly take on monstrous forms.
Avatar n tn For 3 months, little exertion causes my heart to beat rapidly. Before all this I was doing intense exercise fine. For example, walking up a stair with 10 steps, makes my heart beat at 120 BPM, and it usually starts at 80 BPM at the bottom of the stairs. When I am walking outside in somewhat sunny weather, my heart is beating at 110-120 BPM, when I am ONLY walking. Not sure if this is normal.
535822 tn?1443980380 Sadly, I do not look as I did in college anymore. Oh well. Maybe I will just do it while he is gone for the exercise so I look good in my regular clothes when he walks in the door. Mami------- YOU would look awesome! And I will cheer you on on that pole!
Avatar m tn how did you determine that AA doesn't work? how much did you go to AA and for how long? what about it isn't for you? as far as addiction counselors, why don't you find one who your age or older? i was 47 when i got clean and i had no trouble finding a counselor who was my age.
