Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight for women by age and height


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 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 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 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.
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.

My endocrinologist will run tests in 7 weeks to determine my numbers and upon reading all the great advice on here I insisted on a free t3 and t4 test as well. Well I have been stuck at 185 pounds since the surgery and have not lost any weight although I am barely hungry and go most days with one meal.
822804 tn?1298229902 I documented all the thyroid lab work before and after treatment. I went and had metabolic testing to test my BMR and it measured normal for my age and weight and I was symptom free. I then tapered myself off the thyroid and within 2 months all symptoms returned and metabolic testing once again was done, and BMR was extremely low. Back on meds. normal.

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 81kg's. I have a great shape, having 20% body fat, apparently that is perfect for a male my age and height.!! I go to the gym and have no problem bulking up quickly(over 2 months), surprising my male friends who have been trying to bulk up for a year taking expensive supplements and vitamins). I take no supplements to stimulate my muscle growth except an 'up and go' protien drink after gym which has 20grams of protien in it.
Avatar m tn It does not sound very promising for me to have a larger aortic root than 92% of people for my age and weight. This has me fairly worried. I know the response is to go see a cardiologist, I guess that's probably what I'll do. I only wish these things weren't so expensive. I really would just like to find out that I am a completely healthy 21 year old and stop having to worry about these things. I am by no means a hypochondriac, but I have never worried about something as much as I have this.

1149221 tn?1304831566 So waiting an extra week or two to go into labor, which will happen on it's own anyways, should be NORMAL. There are a lot of physiological and chemical things that have to happen for a women to go into labor, all of which depend on the babies readiness for birth, so why do we induce a woman and force a baby to come that isn't ready? I urge all women to just wait and let the baby decide when he wants to come. Don't let a doctor tell you you are overdue.

Avatar f tn All of a sudden the nerves start to get over the bruising and shock they've had and little by little the feeling begins to return. I know what you're going through's very scary when you don't know why things aren't returning to normal after the operation. I know it's no consolation but 12 days is still very early days yet. From what I've experienced, teeth take their own sweet time in deciding when to come right.
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.
298579 tn?1192250448 I was diagnosed with endometriosis at 16, and at 25 started having excruciating cramps after orgasm when masturbating and after erotic dreams (almost never after sex and orgasm). The cramps are accompanied by an urge for a bowel movement, cold sweats, and nausea. Sometime they'd last so long (40+ min) that I would take the meds from when I had my wisdom teeth removed just to knock me out.
