545538 tn?1295995617 It is responsible for us to tell the truth and say that best case scenario is to lose weight if you can and to be honest that, statistically, chances are improved if a person's BMI is at a "normal" level and it's also responsible for us to discuss what challenges someone faces or what strategies they'd need to implement if they choose to go ahead with treatment, to mitigate the known risks - higher ribavirin, get IR testing prior - not everyone with high BMI has IR but it's a higher
Avatar n tn He states he was diagnosed with gastric portal hypertension by his doctor with his endoscopy. Portal hypertension is also a sign of cirrhosis, F2 biopsy or not. What "dx" are you talking about that is a leap? His doctor diagnosed him with it.
Avatar m tn I've heard that many people get fever every time they administer peginterferon. I ran a fever of 102F on the first day that I was injected. Never again. What else? Weight loss: baseline 67Kg. Now 58Kg. I see no reason I should be worried. Baseline height 177cm. Still the same ;-) Anything else? Hair-loss! I've lost a little bit, I suppose. I don't know how much, and I don't care.
Avatar n tn Everything I've read says a BMI of 20..? is ideal for getting pregnant. Well, I'm a bit under (between 18 and 19) and I've been told (not by my doctor) that I might want to try gaining 5 to 10 lbs. Ack! Actually, this is very difficult for me to do, physically and psychologically. I was into running marathons, but I've cut my exercise level drastically and now run ~ 20 miles per week with yoga thrown in. I've always cycled regularly, but now I wonder if I was ovulating!!
Avatar n tn There are quite a few websites about the caloric requirements for weight loss. Figure out your activity level vs. your needed caloric intake. There are actual names for these formulas. One is called the Harris-Benedict Equation Formula. To determine your total daily calorie needs, multiply your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) by a factor of 1.2 for sedentary, by 1.375 for light activity, by 1.55 for moderate activity, by 1.725 for very active, and by 1.9 for extra active.
Avatar n tn i am 134 pounds overweight.

Avatar n tn I have digenerative disc disease and my neirologist just prescribed topamax, he said it would help with the pain and tingling but could result in weight loss. I am wondering if prescribing topamax for ddd is common among neurologists? I can't seem to find any other information related to topamax as a pain med, only information I have is that it's a powerful drug with lots of side effects, most not so good. The weight loss aspect is the only plus...
619345 tn?1310345021 About weight loss well I asked my doctor about losing weight and why cant I start before weight loss it is because the meds in the fridge are based on the weight before I gained weight he said get at least 8 kilos off but if I don't make the mark I will tx anyway with the meds I have made up my mind He said I most likely will not lose weight maybe he is just being him He now calls me Dr.
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.
Avatar n tn I feel like all the ideal measure on weight and height out there are scewed for people that lift and have large muscle mass. Im concerned Im overweight but not sure if its healthy weight or not? I made an appt for this week to get blood work done to figure out if it is a thyroid or some type of hormonal problem. It was commforting to hear Im not the only one with this type of problem! Thanks for all the info!
98010 tn?1305903335 My pants that were feeling loose 2 weeks ago are staring to fit snugly now. I really don't want to keep gaining weight and I am over weight by the BMI standards so I need to do something. I want to get healthy, really I do but its just so difficult. I will try drinking more water and watching what I eat, but I've already cut down my portions so much, if I cut them down anymore then I will be starving myself and that really wont help me lose weight. I am so FED up.
Avatar n tn I went today for my first week weight check and my second weight loss for my first week is 9.5 pounds!!!! Anyone else using Phentermine and B12? I would love to hear how other people have done on these meds. Good Luck to everyone trying...I want to hear your story!
1938479 tn?1325709220 If Arnold Schwarzenegger was to use a BMI (weight vs height) chart while bodybuilding, it would have classified him as obese. Another way to look at fat versus muscles is that a cubic inch of muscle will weigh more than a cubic inch of fat. Muscle is about 18 percent more dense than fat. So a better question is am I in shape or do i need to convert more areas of fat to muscle? With that said, here is a weight chart that should only be used to give you an idea, so don't take it as gospel.
1140722 tn?1266356279 Though long-term results are not yet available, doctors believe POSE will be an effective surgical option for patients who need to lose between 50 and 100 pounds. Incision free weight loss surgery is performed under general anesthesia entirely through the patient’s mouth without any external incisions into the body. In addition to the absence of visible scars, this technique results in fewer complications, less trauma, and shorter recovery time.
Avatar m tn 5 kg, so you are currently about 22% below your ideal body weight. In addition, your body mass index (BMI) is 17.6, which is considered underweight. With your height and age, you are in the 5th percentile when plotted on the Growth Curve Chart of the Bayley-Pinneau method. So, by definition, you are not in the short stature category. However, you are considered in the underweight category. Main causes of short stature can be divided into: 1. Idiopathic, or without any medical causes.
18663 tn?1198175415 The signs you are reporting are all possible symptoms of anorexia such as, rapid weight loss, intense fear of getting fat, being less than 85% of ideal body weight; distorted body image, restrictive eating, possible purging (through vomiting, laxatives, diuretics, excessive exercise).
Avatar f tn Don't get me started on what a waste of paper BMI charts are. They don't include my body type. If I went by their weight I'd look sickly. Absolutely nothing bad about thin women! If you don't judge me, I won't judge you. I have gained a total of 16 lbs. I am 34 weeks, 5 days. I look like I swallowed a beach ball. I have had a rude cashier ask me on 2 occasions if I was sure of only one baby. Yet my dental hygienist said just today that you can't even tell from the back I'm pregnant.
Avatar n tn If you do treat again, 48 weeks sounds like the magic number with SOC and I'd definitely lose all that weight you put on before treatment last time, and maybe some xtra to get down to (or slightly better than) your ideal BMI. You mentioned something earlier about a delay in treatment? Depending on how long the delay, you might want to keep one eye on the European Telaprevir trials for geno 2's and 3's which are enrolling now. Preliminary results should be in later this year.
568322 tn?1370169040 Truth is I (and others) have been recommending here for years that people get down to an ideal BMI prior to treatment and/or address fatty liver findings with diet and/or exercise as a first line treatment. I also understand that IR and fatty liver can be found in thin folks and that still needs to be treated as well.
Avatar m tn I eat a lower fat diet, exercise by walking 40 minutes 5-6 times per week, don't smoke, control borderline hypertension with 5mg lisinopril daily, have a BMI of 30 but don't have enough self control to lose any weight. I had muscle pain and memory loss with statins, flushing and finally facial swelling with niacin supplements. The memory loss was so bad, I sold my veterinary practice and retired BEFORE the lawsuit. I ran for exercise until I wore out my left knee, now I walk.

233616 tn?1312790796 Since every patients profile is different, their metabolisms differ, they drugs they take differ….so the complexity of helping vs. killing them is very real. Since some inducers have been observed creating 100 fold increases in plasma levels, it is imperative that the patient NOT attempt to improve the synergy of any drug without the knowledge and approval of his or her physician.
Avatar m tn Maintain your ideal body weight. One way to judge your ideal body weight is via body mass index (BMI). Your BMI represents the percentage of your total body weight that’s due to fat. It should be under 25. Many health clubs have simple handheld devices that provide a BMI reading. These also can be purchased at drug stores. your total cholesterol count unless you already had a weight problem was probably in the 120s. That’s the range that’s typical in populations without heart disease.

Avatar n tn HDL-26....I probably walk about 20-25 miles per week, non-smoker, ideal weight...Ok, I do drink about 8 cans of Coke a day (I have to have some splurge!)..Can that much caffeine cause PVC's?.....But back to my main concern HDL, since the other numbers are normal, does having a low HDL have the same significance?....Should note to that there is a family history w/father, who died at 48 of heart attack.....I do blood work again in about 6 weeks, but since being on various meds.
Avatar n tn I Wrote the other day my stats grade 2, stage 2, Fibrosis 55yrs old, geno 1a, 249lbs at start of tx start of TX VL 8,500,000 four weeks 669,000 WEEK 12 VL 16,600 (Weight 220lbs) my evaluaton by my gastro (hep) doctor was this morning, Friday june 15, 2007 here is what he said... he was very surprised and pleased at how much my VL dropped in 12 weeks......he admitted that he didnt expect such good results...
Avatar m tn There's a band new study that showed that for females who were insulin resistant, taking Metformin 850mg 3 times a day increased the SVR to 57.7% vs 28.6% without Metformin. (Metformin is a medication that makes you more sensitive to insulin).
Avatar m tn Someone at 255 and near 6' would have a BMI of 35 the mid range for obese. Someone at 5' 7in the BMI would be 40 extremely obese. From what I understand BMI over 35 has been a factor in achieving SVR for some treatments in the past. no inflammation - was your ALT AST, platelets etc normal before during and after treatment? diabetic or other conditions?
Avatar f tn A few other notes, I have went from almost no exercise to working out pretty hard, at least 40 minutes a day of walking to a full hour of aerobics a couple of times a week pretty recently to being tested, as in the two or so months prior. Also, I had gained a lot of weight. My ideal BMI weight is 135 and I was there a few years ago, now I am 181, so fatty liver was another possibility the doctor gave me for the high enzyme readings (I think her words were something like high liver activity).
