Avatar m tn The muscle-building ideal is 20 grams of protein, half before and half after your workout. Bring these convenient snacks to the gym to fuel growth. Chicken, Turkey, or Tuna (3 oz) 14-22 grams protein 66-100 calories Wrap one of these standbys in a piece of whole grain bread.
Avatar n tn Do I know your story well! Our first born granddaughter was selectively mute for several years in school before the anxiety lessened to the point where the voice surfaced. By the way, it is not that your child "won't talk or show what she knows", she is unable to talk and unable to show what she knows. The school environment which she perceives to be unsafe renders her mute.
Avatar n tn Can anyone give me an idea of how long it usually takes for your metabolism to recalibrate after stopping Effexor and/or Lexapro? I've gained significant weight while on these drugs (despite an intense exercise program and careful diet). My nutritionist and MD told me that the drugs likely altered my metabolism, but no one can tell me how long it will take to correct that. Most frustrating, I've noticed that since I stopped taking both, my weight gain has accelerated.
93210 tn?1287457826 I only had 80 pounds to lose, too, but I've gained and lost it many time over the past 25 years, and my top weight was a full 100 pounds over my ideal weight. That was the only reason they agreed to do it. They took a detailed account of every weight loss clinic I had ever attended, how much I lost over how much time, etc. As it was, I was the thinnest person ever banded in the clinic. The anesthetist had serious misgivings, as did my GP.

Avatar n tn that 30 certainly is below normal in general, especially for somebody who's not little. Ideal is said to be 115/75. Do you get dizzy spells or fainting? Headaches? If you have no problems like that, then maybe you're just made to be at a lower blood pressure. One concern might be if the organs aren't getting enough blood/oxygen. Can you think of anything that you do or consume that's not usual? Have you had a recent infection? Are you dehydrated?
172023 tn?1334675884 I think what bothers me is that I know how it feels to be desperate about being overweight and wishing that I could lose the weight rapidly and even though we are all adults here and capable of making our own decisions, I think it is possible to feel so distraught and vulnerable that people can be easily enticed into trying methods that are less than ideal.
Avatar n tn maintain ideal body weight (fat cells are insulin resistant, so if he is a bit on the chunky side, losing a few pounds may help); exercise; and eat a diet lower in carbohydrates, and those carbs should be carbs that are whole grains and never carbs with a high glycemic index. If I were you, I would ask his doctor to do lab work to determine if their are antibodies present that indicate that his immune system is attacking his pancreas.
4920683 tn?1370199121 Recommended Pegintron Combination Therapy Dosing (Adults) Body Weight kg (lbs) 66-75 (145-166) Amount of Pegintron (mcg) to Administer 96 mcg Body Weight kg (lbs) 76-80 (167-177) Amount of Pegintron (mcg) to Administer 120 mcg
Avatar f tn The dosage you state is correct but is not based on your actual weight. It is the general guideline based on lean body mass/ideal body weight (IBW) which is a better indicator of replacement needs. IBW is based on sex, height, and frame size. Not everyone needs full replacement and as Barb135 stated, we are all different and it is better to work upward slowly based on lab results than to risk overdose based solely on a general guideline that may or may not be right for you.
82861 tn?1333457511 5kgs and she still needs to lose at least 2 more kgs. My beagle is a tall beagle 15/16 and her ideal weight should be 16kgs or 35/40 lbs. Your beagle is probably double its required weight and this can cause major health problems not just joint and legs but heart, kidney ,liver etc. If you love your dog be strong and put your dog on a diet dont leave it until it to late and you regret it !

Avatar m tn Ease up on the meat. The report points out that a staggering 117 million American adults have preventable, chronic diseases, many of which stem from poor diet. One of their recommended solutions for this is turning to what they call the "Healthy Vegetarian Pattern." Notable characteristics of this diet include no meat and more nuts and legumes.
Avatar n tn tall) = 147lbs This should put you within 5-10llbs of your ideal weight depending on your bone structure.
872485 tn?1240607162 Your doctor is correct by having you follow exercise and proper nutrition. Please include proper weight as all three play large roles in controlling glucose levels. Below 6% is ideal.
Avatar n tn I tend to battle my weight, and once was about 60 pounds overweight, but have kept within 10-15 pounds of my ideal weight for 15 years. I also have been diagnosed with depression, and am currently on Zoloft. I lost my father and had a miscarriage within the past year, and it seems as if the picking has become more intense, and I can't seem to stop.
Avatar n tn Now, sometimes a person can be perfectly healthy, not overdo, have the ideal weight, avoid fat, and still wind up with high blood pressure. This might be you, in which case this is why they are giving you blood pressure drugs, so you need to take those to prevent heart problems.
1544507 tn?1293634965 I can't make the "topic" work for me. I truly feel that we as overfed, under-exercised adults in America (and elsewhere) have lost sight of what "normal" weight is. If we go back to our parents, and their parents, and look at their pictures, they are slim - very slim. The notion of "average" weight in the US seems to have taken on a stranglehold to health and medical practitioners. I believe that in the 19th century, an adult woman weighed a short 100 Lb.
798555 tn?1292791151 I have no experience with that. My Armour Thyroid dosage was such that even though I had FT4 in the lower third of its range, my FT3 was at the very high end of its range. And this was with deferral of my morning dose until after the blood draw. After that time I had to reduce my Armour dosage and add T3, due to a high Reverse T3 test result. Your question made me recall this quote from a good thyroid doctor. "With thyroid hormone levels, another problem occurs.
Avatar n tn My consultant and GP (family doctor) have been trying to find a neurologist that specialises in ASD related neurology for adults but they have been unable to find one in the UK. My GP told me there is a huge gulf of knowledge for adult treatment and neurologists for ASD essentially only exists for children and they refuse to see adults. I was wondering if they exist in the US? My upstanding is they do as I heard fellow ASD talk about them.
Avatar f tn You might wish to start with the FAQ's and then the resources. Since your son does speak to some adults, it appears his anxiety is not as severe as some children; but make no mistake, selective mutism is a severe form of anxiety. You need to go back to your family doctor and ask for a referral to a specialist with experience in anxiety disorders as a child psychologist, or child psychiatrist or child neurologist, etc.
980724 tn?1248526205 More important than whether those test results should be considered normal is the fact that those symptoms are not normal and you should not have to tolerate them. It's good that you have FT3 and FT4 test results. These are the active thyroid hormones that largely regulate metabolism and many other body functions. Note that your results are slightly below the midpoint of their range. Accordingly, here is some good info for you to consider.
Avatar f tn is she able to speak to both peers and adults at school, is she able to use the washroom (and I mean actually use the facility and not just enter and pretend), is she able to eat at school, is she able to concentrate/learn at school, does she exhibit the "hesitation" factor - that is, is she slow to respond to directives and instructions, does she "play" with the other children at school, is she able to make her needs known (an example would be if she fell and hurt herself,
Avatar m tn That would be the only reason for not using doxy. It would be ideal to take a herb called atemisia at well for the same period of time. Amoxy is not very powerful against lyme, it certainly does not work without other antibiotics taken together. The usualy treatmetn for kids under 8 is cefuroxim twice daily (high dose proprtional to body weight) plus azithromycin 3 times a week. So long as you act within 6 weeks of the bite he should be fine.
Avatar f tn Mia helps me get skinny easy but Ana always has to be a downer and tell me I won't be skinny until I'm down to 90 lbs she says it's an ideal weight for 5'3 I've been friends with them for 2 months and I've lost over 30 lbs (183, 2) but Mia lets me eat what ever I want but after 15 Mantua she says it's too much calories it cant stay. I'm always sad now. People still call me fat and it makes even more sad because I'm trying but I guess not hard enough. Sometimes I just cry myself to sleep.

649848 tn?1534637300 46 PM (ET) By MARILYNN MARCHIONE The nation's first new guidelines in a decade for preventing heart attacks and strokes call for twice as many Americans - one-third of all adults - to consider taking cholesterol-lowering statin drugs. The guidelines, issued Tuesday by the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology, are a big change.
Avatar n tn I teach a classroom of 5 year olds and church and she is right in there with all of them in size but less in weight. Just wondering here also....
Avatar f tn It also helps you maintain an ideal weight, reducing your chance of developing clogged arteries. You don't have to exercise for 30 minutes straight you can break it up into 10-minute increments. Aerobic or cardiovascular exercise such as walking lowers risk of stroke and heart disease, helps you lose weight, and keeps bones strong. If you're just starting out, try a 10-minute walk and gradually build up from there. You want to get to 10,000 steps per day buy a pedometer.
Avatar m tn Vitamin D3 and K2 can assist in prevention of bone density along with weight bearing exercise. Reducing your Mum's medication so she is depressed is so wrong. Am assuming that she was not over medicated based on h er blood work (which should have included FT3 and FT4 - with ideal levels being in the upper 1/2 of the reference range). Please be agressive on getting this addressed.
