Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight in relation to height


Avatar n tn I'm tired of trying to lose weight to be 'in' and thin when everyone says I look good now just because that BMI the doctor uses says I'm too big.
Avatar n tn It helps you because the pill is for insulin resistance and once your body starts excepting sugar again it helps you burn it and everything appose to the sugar just sitting in your body causing you to gain weight because its not going to the proper cells. The pill does have its side affects but if you think its something abnormal then you should probably just talk to your doc about it and clear it up if it continues.
Avatar n tn I am sure that it has its uses but weight loss in my opinion is not one of them. In Febraury of 2005 I went to the doctor comlaining that I was eating to much and my memory was poor. With no hesitation or questioning he mentioned that I should try topamax. I took the pescription but did not get it filled. About two weeks later I went to see him about something else and he asked me how the topamax was going. I told him that I really did not want to take a drug for the problem.
Avatar m tn I have worked out for the last 5 years straight averaging 3-4 times a week. In my routine, I have worked out to bulk up, and to tone during this time. I would run also in my workouts. To my knowledge I don't believe I have ever hurt myself during my workouts nor hurt at all during them. I have had many visits to have my back adjusted, but no changes there. I have even changed my matress a few times as well.
Avatar n tn I've wondered if there is any relation to this since the vessells always burst in the joints of my fingers and toes. I've asked my doctor, with no answers. Im gald I found this site.
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Avatar n tn If I sleep later (like on a Saturday or Sunday) I wake to pain in my lower back and right hip and it usually lasts all day long. I workout at least 3 to 4 times a week. My exercises begin with Situps and Pushup and then I run (on a treadmill) and an elyptical machine. I notice while doing situps that I get some pain near the hip area (lower back but on right side). I just wanted to pass my info along to the group and if anyone has information for me please provide it. After reading above.
Avatar n tn Well she is on a low dose which will make the WD easier. At some point she is going to have to go CT. Drinking alcohol is not going to help in any way. Alcohol is very dehydrating and shes probably already dehydrated. Get a lot of Gatorade for her and have her drink it all the time. Also get some Imodium, liquid. It helps, I took it twice a day. Her body is addicted and will make her sick so she will keep using. It's a vicious cycle.
162948 tn?1205256292 I'm Angela and I had the mirena IUD in for 3 1/2 years and had it removed in December 2007 to try to conceive again. I just found out yesterday I am pregnant about 3 weeks along, so it only took me about 2 months to get pregnant. I got a real period on January 9th and Feb. 9th, so I was regular pretty fast, but I had a lot of pregnancy symptoms immediately after removal and a lot of spotting and brown discharge, which the doctor told me was normal.
1544507 tn?1293634965 Now we're on a level we can both identify with. I knew we'd get here eventually. My thoughts on grocery shopping are this: shop only around the outside perimeter of the store......... think produce, meat, dairy -- all along the perimeter...... the closer you get to the center of the store, the more processed (translate: fattening) the foods are....... I, too, don't like the word "diet"........ most people think of the word "diet" in relation to losing weight (i.
Avatar f tn But because it can take up to a year for the body to believe it won't be starved again, it continued storing while you passed the ideal weight range for your height and body type. I found my weight to be most controllable when I added calories a little at a time. I kept my workouts pretty intense and made sure to nourish my body with the most important nutrients, in very small, but frequent meals.
748543 tn?1463449675 Dental Occlusion must be synchronized with healthy Mandibular Function as it relates to a healthy head position and by extension a healthy posture. So why are teeth/occlusion so important for posture? In simple terms incorrect posture is due to a twisted spine, which barring accidents or skeletal abnormalities- like a short leg, is due to an incorrect position of the skull.
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.
519226 tn?1378994921 My brother hasn't had anything to do with her in the last several years. No one wants to be around her because she is so nasty. She always has to put people down, and it seems she is extremely jealous of me. Recently, she said in an extremely bitter tone, that she can't stand looking at me and my 2 siblings because we look like our grandmother and father. (What do we need to get plastic surgery?) She said she doesn't trust anyone, especially her own children.
6322039 tn?1380731598 For your size, that's not even enough to accommodate your daily BMR. Your ideal weight can be anywhere between 149 and 170, so don't get stuck on the 150 number. AND with all the exercise you, apparently, get you will be quite muscular, so even though your weight might be higher than you want, you might be in better shape than you think. Try taking your measurements, periodically, and see if you're getting "smaller", even if not "lighter".
545538 tn?1295995617 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, looked at specific causes of deaths in relation to body mass index, a ratio of height and weight. A BMI of 25 to less than 30 is considered overweight, while a BMI of 30 or greater is considered obese. The study did find significant risks linked to obesity, including a higher risk of death from heart disease, diabetes and kidney disease, and several cancers that have been linked with obesity, such as breast, colon and pancreatic cancer.

Avatar n tn I do go tomorrow Feb 28th to an oral pathologist at The University of Texas Medical Branch in Houston, TX but has anyone heard of this problem in relation to HCG injections?
Avatar n tn My heart rate reaches or exceeds 200 bpm at least once every run, and when I was on a Holter monitor a couple years ago (was having some palpitations checked out) I worked out and at one point got it up to 211. My resting rate is in the mid 50's, which is down a bit from what it was when I started running (was in the mid 60's).
Avatar n tn Neddypoo put it pretty well. I get the same symptoms when I am "A Fibbin". In addition to the stomach bloating and upper GI gas, my asthma kicks in. I often need to take my metered dose inhalor when I am "A Fibbn". However, I will say that I am not entirely sure these symptom, which are certainly related, are not present after the A Fib event. I am not sure whether the A/Fib is causing the gas/bloating and the asthma attack or the other way around.
211940 tn?1267884866 Pain in the upper right arm is excruciating at night and last night it started slightly in left arm. Have resorted to sleeping in almost a sitting position to keep arms straight because pain is worsened if arm is bent. Pain meds for last three nights did not help. Dr. said it may be overuse of the muscle due to the physical work I do. She said pain meds only will help a little, need anti-inflammatory meds which I am allergic to and cannot take. Has anyone tried those?
534800 tn?1217170959 I've learn to deal with it, know that if I an walking a bunch in the hot, humid weather to take it easy, but only want to somehow know if it will continue to spread over the years as it appears to be doing each summer season. I'd also like to know if I relocate to a much, much drier climate if it might go away (lived in Arizona and California and never had the problem but also never walked 8+ miles daily either). I'm only in my mid-40's; why do you think I contracted this?
Avatar n tn Not to mention that I think it is a little ridiculous for a healthy 21 year old to have to take it to have a functional penis. I am physically fit and exercise daily (have to in order to keep from getting anymore depressed about it). I have no idea what has caused this problem, but it needs to be fixed. I don't believe in suicide, but I doubt I can handle life much longer if this doesn't get fixed. I just can't enjoy things anymore.
Avatar m tn Viread offers a 5% chance of loss of HBsAg in 48 weeks while Baraclude offers a 5% chance in 96 weeks. Do you think it's safe to conclude that Viread has a higher chance than Baraclude of wiping out the virus? Also, since Viread and Baraclude are both meant to lower the viral load, it seems treatment should be combined with Pegasys (which provides roughly a 10% chance of "s" antigen loss) to boost the immune system for maximum efficacy...
Avatar n tn I have had numerous nerve blocks,and muscle injections,with some relief from the nerve pain but no interruption of the basic pain from thoracic to ribs and then to sternum (if I don't sit up in time). I have begun trying to go to sleep sitting up to avoid the onset but it is almost impossible and my tailbone is suffering. As far as someone mentioned, taking sleeping pills to sleep through the pain, my experience is that you will pay the price for not sitting up when you need to.

Avatar n tn My husband ran into the bathroom and got a hot wash cloth and placed it on my neck to try and relax the muscles, which seemed to help, but I can still feel that something is not right in there. When I couldn't get it back in, it seemed to get worse, the more I paniced, and it felt like something was tilting backwards and trying to puncture a hole into my throat. I haven't been able to get a full yawn since then, some due to it hurting, and some probably due to fear of it getting stuck again.
Avatar n tn I didn't even pay attention to my weight, as I hated myself anyway! It was rough. In comparison, I was on the patch for two years back in 2003, and if the patch had any impact on my emotions, it was a positive one as I experienced less mood swing around the time of my period. I stopped the patch because numerous negative news came out and I got nervous. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn One to two months after the surgery I started having cramps in the lower extremities that progressed to constant aching in the feet and knees. Five months after the implant I elected to have the swine flu vaccination which resulted in a numb feeling and tingling in the extremities along with diarrhea and dizziness that subsided after a few days. Since then the tingling has combined with the aching in the lower extremities and progressed upward to include the thighs.
