Avatar f tn I am a 37-year-old Caucasian woman who comes from a family with a history of heart disease & diabetes. My maternal grandmother died of a heart attack at 61, my maternal grandfather had 2 non-fatal heart attacks and a mild stroke in his sixties/seventies. I grew up with horrible eating habits: virtually no vegetables, lots of fried food, large quantities. I have done Weight Watchers off and on most of my adult life (since age 20), but have gone years in between being on the program.

Avatar f tn I am 48 yrs. I have a untreated micro pititatruy tumor & I am over weight & now on weight watchers. I am being treated for cholesterol & high bp. Lately while doing simple things like taking a shower or dressing I have been sweating profusely & my heart rate is at 110. I thought maybe menopause but not so sure any more. My BP is perfect.
Avatar f tn 3 years ago, following the death of my mother, my weight shot up and so i joined weight watchers. i successfully lost 2 1/2 stone. since then i have gained a stone back and so i rejoined weight watchers in Feb of this year. Since then, i have stayed exactly the same weight. 3 months ago my doctor kindly put me on to Orlistat, but even then the weight didn't shift.

Avatar f tn Is there anything other than diet and exercise that I can do. I've tried Slim Fast, Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers and even Optifast. I am 5'5" and weigh 175-180. Lots of leg, butt, arm and waist fat. I walk daily and ride a bike when the weather is OK.

1298588 tn?1330318981 As I was walking I could feel my heart going fast and it was going at 160 beats per minute. I got on the train and it went down to around 120, then got off a few minutes later and walked up some stairs, which made it go it back to 160. By the time I had gotten to class and sat down, it was in the 80s, which is pretty normal for me in the mornings. I just can't believe that such a tiny bit of exertion caused my heart rate to go up so much! Was it just a matter of anxiety?
Avatar m tn heart beat 160 sounds health
Avatar f tn I am very concerned for reoccuring cancer due to heavy weight and also complications with my general health due to the weight. I am medication free right now, except a small dose of Celexa. I have just had the flu/bronchitus for 10 days and it is brutal. I need to get strong to fight off these things....please, any help would be appreciated. I have beat cancer once.....I don't want to even give it one more chance anywhere in my body.
649848 tn?1534633700 I’ve tried several different tactics, but have mostly opted for lifestyle changes that I can stick with, because of health issues that are actually causing my weight problem. These health issues include hypothyroidism and insulin resistance, along with probable absorption issues.
Avatar m tn Im on weight watchers but I need to exercise. It's very hard with me being out of breath walking from my door to the car. My weight is 168, what kind of exercise can I do?
Avatar f tn Hello Its wonderful that your asthma has abated. It would be difficult to prognosticate on a description of a "slightly" enlarged heart. As you may know, CT scan is not the best way to evaluate heart size and provides no information on function either. You will probably undergo a cardiac echo at some point in addition to your stress test. These functional tests will provide insight into what the prognosis is for your condition.
