Heart problems from rapid weight loss

Common Questions and Answers about Heart problems from rapid weight loss


Avatar m tn Thank you very much for the information you sent regarding my wife's problems with heat intolerance, rapid heart rate, arrhythmias, and weight loss. To answer your questions about anxiety and herbs, neither seem to be a problem. She doesn't take herbs and is a calm person. Her rapid heart rate started in the mid 70s, and her heat intolerance started slowly a couple of years ago, but ,as mentioned, is growing increasingly worse.

Avatar n tn I guess it can be a compelling argument that rapid weight loss could do it, but while I also shed 25 kilo's I never lost more than 1% of my weight in a weeks time and my palps started to occur at about 12 kilo loss? When I cut out the lisinopril they stopped for a short time, then I cut the HCTZ and they stopped for a short time, only to come back stronger and more frequent. Thats why I'm here, why o why?
Avatar m tn s constant, if it comes on randomly (for no known reason), if you are elderly, or if you have a history of heart problems, you need to see a doctor. If it's scaring you, or if it just doesn't seem normal, I'd suggest getting your doctor involved.

Avatar f tn Speaking to your original question about rapid weight loss in cirrhosis. The symptom of rapid weight loss would be associated with end stages of cirrhosis would be when the body begins consuming itself and basically begins to shut down near death. This weight loss is a symptom of muscle waisting.

Avatar n tn I'm 49, had surgery two years ago removing scar tissue caused by a hystorectomy 13 years ago. They also removed both overies. I immediatly started having hot flashes after the surgery, and memopause kicked in without ever having symptons before the surgery. I recently noticed my heart rate is increased which is been happening now for serveral weeks. More so durning a hot flash.
Avatar f tn Losing weight and especially such a significant amount can reverse the negative health issues the obesity created. Weight loss has been shown to reverse heart disease and diabetes. Read this article: https://www.cdc.gov/healthyweight/losing_weight/index.html. Even modest weight lost of 5% of your weight can significantly improve your health. We're cheering you on. MedHelp also has a weight loss and dieting group that is active. Here is the link: https://www.medhelp.
Avatar f tn s dangerous on your health to loose weight too quickly. Extreme dieting can lead to malnutrition and rapid weight loss can cause problems like gallstones. I know the Biggest Looser makes it all seem so easy to loose fast, but they are constantly watched by drs monitoring everything they do. It's recommended to keep weight loss between 1-2 lbs a week. Usually in your first week that may be a little more depending on how big of a change you make, but an average of 1-2 lbs a week is ideal.
Avatar f tn Over the past few months, I have noticed that I have developed a very rapid heart beat. In addition to feeling short of breath, at least 2 to 3 times a minute, I feel a sinking feeling in my stomach-comparable to the feeling you get when you drop suddenly or are on the way down on a roller coaster. Should I be alarmed?
Avatar f tn I had the same thing. If you eat a little in the morning like half an orange or an apple you get the natural sugar from the fruit and it isn't going to effect your weight loss if you still want to loose weight rapidly. I went through not eating but I played sports so I had to have energy so this is what helped me the most.

Of course this depends somewhat on how hypo you are. Also, weight loss from extreme dieting and exercise, while hypo, tend to be unsustainable over the longer term.
Avatar m tn Hypo for me is always tired weight gain sleeplessness. I tried to raise my levels but I immediately suffered from more insomnia. I am not going to put myself through more insomnia just to prove that I know more than my doctors, I'm tired of self medicating and self doctoring. No, I believe my heart rate being elevated at night has to do with something else, perhaps I'm going hyper at certain times of the day even though my tsh is highish.
Avatar n tn As far as the concentration problems, hair loss, and nervousness these can all be side effects from the Levothyroxin. I Hope This Helps, Good Luck.
Avatar f tn hyperthyroid causes alot of problems,,,nervousness, hand tremors, in some people ringing in the ears, palpitions, anxieties, loss of appetite, loss of weight, hard to fall asleep or keep u from sleeping long, muscluar movements tht wake u, head pressures, racing thoughts, im not a doctor but just speaking from exprience.....ive had ultrasound of the thyroid and the goiter and eveything was normal..than they did an uptake scan of my thyroid and found maybe a small nodule but very nonspecific..
Avatar f tn I am going to ask to switch to Abilify as I have read good reports on that and know a few people on it that are helped by it. The Geodone is causing weight loss. Rare side effect. It was great in the begining, I lost all the weight I gained while on Ziprexa but now I am down to a size 2 and people keep asking me if I am okay so I know the weight loss is noticable. Good luck. The beginning stages are the hardest. It may also take a while to get the med combination right so keep trying.
