Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight and height for men

weight

Avatar m tn Your height should be twice your weight in inches (or more), at least for men. Don't think this emphasis on belly fat was studied in terms of SVR but it couldn't hurt to lose any excess prior to treatment.
Avatar n tn Add me to the total column for men. Been hypo t and on T4 meds. for over 30 years. Learned a lot from this forum including the need to check free T3, to assure the body is converting T4 adequately ( which mine was not). Seems like I have read somewhere that over 20 % of the population has thyroid problems, with women being substantially higher, especially over the age of 35. It was interesting that when the range for TSH was revised downward from .5-5.0 to .3-3.
Avatar n tn But, I am seriously contemplating asking my MD to prescribe Topamax for me for weight loss. I think maybe my blood pressure will also decrease, and I am sure my feet and joints won't hurt anymore if I can get this extra 60 lbs off me. As I said, I am 66 years young, and am interested if any other young seniors are in my shoes. Any comments for the older group will be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn If you're taking this pill just to loose weight, and not for a health reason, you should stop taking it, and see that if you keep eating healthy, and walking, you'll still loose! And BTW, taking this pill 10 mins before a meal to help with your appetite is crazy! All diet pills tell you to take it 30min.s before each meal.. b/c it takes 30 min.s to start working...10 min.s? that pill isn't doing anything for you when you're eating!
Avatar n tn I want to know if my weight is correct for my age and height. (Male, 54, 5ft 5in, 145 pounds, Asian Indian). I'm a marginal diabetic (excellent control with 1/2 tablet of 1 mg metformin at night). I walk 40-60 min every single day (3.5 mph), do 30 min of pranayama and 30 min of yoga asanas on alternate days and 30 min of dumbbell weight training on the other three days. Yet, my weight won't go down.
Avatar f tn I suggest buying a heart rate monitor. Figure your heart rate by this formula, The Karvonen Formula is a mathematical formula that helps you determine your target heart rate zone. The formula involves using your maximum heart rate (MHR) minus your age to come up with a target heart rate range (which is a percentage of your MHR). Staying within this range will help you work most effectively during your cardio workouts.
1277304 tn?1272937851 Yes, you need to cut calories to lose weight, but you also need exercise. You can't figure that we all need the same amount of calories/day. For some people, 1200 wouldn't even be enough to support basic metabolic needs, for others, it might be too much. You need to calculate your calorie needs based on your current weight, height and activity level to get your BMR, then cut/use calories accordingly.
Avatar n tn I had to find a new doctor since I had moved to another town, and when I first went to him I weighed 133 pounds, which is ideal for my height. I gained 40 pounds in six months. I just looked through my medical records that I just happened to have because I requested them. I noticed in my records that after I was switched from the morphine to oxycontin, I gained 14 pounds in one month. My doctor has increased my dose from 15 mg. oxycodone to 30 mg. of oxycodone every 4 hours.
Avatar n tn The hormones contained in HGH should/and have had results( all good) for weight gain problems and ache and pains associated with hysterectomies.
Avatar n tn If you're a woman, start with 100 pounds for the first 5 feet in height, and add 5 pounds for every extra inch. For men, it's 106 pounds for 5 feet in height, plus 6 pounds for every additional inch. However, if your ideal weight is less than 120 pounds, don't eat less than 82 g of protein daily. # 2 Ideal Weight (in lb) ÷ 2.2 = Ideal Weight (in kg) # 3 Ideal Weight (in kg) × 1.
233915 tn?1218816727 I do try and count my calories and I average 1200 - right on target for my height and weight with exercise load. And I run usually 5 miles every other day and swim 3/4 of a mile on alternate days. Sometimes depending on work load that might vary to a quick 30 minute jog instead of the 5 miler, and a 30 min. swim or weights at the gym. My friends can't understand it either becuase they work at the same as me, eat whatever they want, drink whatever they want and are bean poles.
Avatar n tn What I have found is that in some people, undiagnosed celiac will cause them to lose weight and for others, they gain weight. If you not familiar with what celiac is, its an allergy to gluten (wheat, barley, rye, etc.). If you have this and eat anything with gluten, you kill off the villi in your intestines which cause you bosy not to absord any nutrients - therefore causing many other health issues.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar n tn I was on for 2 years and gained 15 pounds (but of course, I didn't care since I was on a drug) Now, I've been off for SIX MONTHS and I can not lose the weight. I know I ate more and drank (like a fish) more on Lexapro, but I also kept going to the gym. I am hoping that it re-calibrates, but I'm 48 years old, so I'm worried. I feel like a dumpy old lady. Right now, I'm taking 5HTP for depression, and it's not as powerful as a drug but it does work. And it helps with food cravings.
93210 tn?1287457826 All I do is take a strong laxative and wait for the gas to move out. It works for me anyway. As fas as the weight loss surgery goes, I'm pretty sure you have to be at least 100 pounds over weight to qualify. But maybe there are exceptions. I guess you probably need to talk to your doctor for both questions.
Avatar f tn Your weight is between the 50-25th percentile for your age. The weight you are at an ideal for your height. You do not need to lose weight. You can tone-up your body by exercising. Aerobic exercises would be good, such as walking, stair stepping, dancing, and biking. These exercises help your heart and body to stay healthy. Yoga is another form of exercise to try also.
Avatar n tn I HAVE BEEN ON YAZ FOR TWO YEARS NOW AND I HAVE GAINED 40 POUNDS! I AM DOING WEIGHT WATCHER AND EXERCISING LIKE CRAZY AND CAN NOT TAKE THE WEIGHT OFF, MY DOCTOR SAYS IT IS NOT THE CULPRIT, I HAVE NEVER HAD A WEIGHT PROBLEM BEFORE, I AM CONSIDERING GOING OFF THIS PILL BUT DONT KNOW WHAT PILL TO SWITCH TO, I HAVE ENDRIOMETROIS AND NEED SOMETHING TO HELP WITH THE PAIN, ANYBODY HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS?
545538 tn?1295995617 Correct for these conditions first and it will be easier to take weight off, as well as give you a greater chance of treating successfully.
Avatar n tn I hope you find someone to listen to you, I feel fortunate that the Drs I am working with have believed my symptoms and kept looking for an answer.
233616 tn?1312790796 Been working on my ideal strategy for next round of tx. and came across this little study of how high purine foods lower Riba absorption. Since all we've ever discussed in here is how FAT helps riba to absorb, I thought knowing what might hinder it's absorption was worth knowing also. Ribavirin is found to be absorbed in the intestine through the human concentrative nucleoside transporter 2 (hCNT2). Cellular uptake of ribavirin was strongly inhibited by purine nucleoside in an in vitro study.

544292 tn?1268886268 Welcome to Part 6! Please make yourself at home!
Avatar n tn Thank you for mentioning this. I'm not a overly large person in my opinion but every time I take the BMI it tells me I'm overweight. My family, friends and coworkers say I look fine for my height. I know I have a larger bone structure because I can't get bracelets to slide over my hands, I can't wear anklets and I can wear blazers unless I have them altered to fit after I buy them because my shoulders are wide.
Avatar m tn I'm not on any medication other than lanzoprazil for acid reflux and st. John's Wort. I have trouble sleeping and sometimes take temazapam, grind my teeth, and have ongoing sinus problems, for which I was using nasal decongestants, until I read that they often have cortisol in them, which can cause CSR, and possibly the other problem. I've also heard coffee and chocolate can affect CSR.
Avatar f tn The dentist had to go close to the nerve to properly clean and medicate in order to (hopefully) avoid a root canal. That was on 4/14 and I also got gassed for the procedure. Bottom left lip and chin still numb - dentist said it could take about a week to go away. Crossing my fingers...
Avatar f tn There have been some side effects reported from the use of phenylethylamine. These effects include heartburn, nausea, constipation and headaches. There have also been some more serious side effects such as insomnia, confusion, dizziness and chest pains, although these appear to be less common. 18 Metabolism-Boosting Foods How much protein do you need? New research suggests that many of us may need more protein than we realize. The current RDA is 0.
Avatar n tn It was found through a routine physical with an EKG. I am a 34 year old female, non-smoker/non-drinker, vegetarian, and an ideal weight for my height, but I don't exercise. My father did have a heart attack at an early age (58). I have no outward symptoms and the only other health issues I deal with are tiredness/lack of energy and headaches/migraines. The doctor doing the physical said it was nothing to worry about.
Avatar n tn 18 Metabolism-Boosting Foods How much protein do you need? New research suggests that many of us may need more protein than we realize. The current RDA is 0.8 g of protein per kilogram of body weight, but several studies have found that 1 to 1.2 g may be more protective against age-related muscle loss. Use this formula to determine the minimum amount of protein you should eat daily to offset muscle loss—and protect your metabolism—while you lose weight.
298579 tn?1192250448 Interestingly enough, I had never mentioned the pain to my mother until recently and she told me that she had the same thing and is pretty sure my grandmother did as well. She said that both she and my grandmother had also had hysterectomys and that for her the pain went away after that. It is my fervent prayer that we may all find a cure to this thing, sooner rather than later.
931217 tn?1283484935 [86-89] Hip dysplasia is estimated to lead to clinically significant arthritis is fewer than 5% of affected dogs, but there are many factors involved including breed, weight, and the degree of anatomic abnormality of the hip joint, which makes predicting the outcome for any individual difficult.[89] The incidence of hip dysplasia is most strongly associated with breed and family history.[86,90,91]. Some studies have identified neutering as increasing the risk of hip dysplasia.[86,92].
