326176 tn?1239515689 Following a heart attack last October, I am put on medications viz. carvedilol,lasix,eplerenone,stator, and nitro glycerin. Recently it is observed that I am losing weight .I have lost around 12 kilos over a period of 5 months. Does this indicate that the medications are adversely affecting my body?
Avatar f tn Having a healthy lifestyle including following a low-fat diet rich in fruits and vegetables, lowering salt intake, losing weight, quitting smoking and doing physical activity to improve heart fitness may help. Have regular check-up with your attending physician for proper evaluation and monitoring. Take care and best regards.
Avatar f tn m afraid I might suspect that she suffered anoxia, the lack of sufficient oxygen supplied to her brain, during or after the heart attack. Damage to an oxygen-starved brain is likely to be heavily in the front, where intellectual ability, self control, and other analytical and management functions of the brain reside.
Avatar n tn I am a 25 year old male who has been having strange chest discomfort for almost two years now. I felt this weird sensation 2 years ago and rushed to the emergency room because I thought I was having a heart attack. After being checked out the doctors told me I was okay...they ran echo's, ekg, blood work and beside the study of the echo not being able to be done to its full extent because of my body size everything seemed was fine according to them.

Avatar n tn i have manage to keep my weight within 3-4 lbs of what i was before the heart attack. losing it has become a major battle. i am insulin resistant. i walk at least 25 minutes a day, very active, cholesterol is down from 360 to 112. so instead of making myself crazy with weight loss, i try to consentrate on getting stronger. i suffered severe anxiety attacks for 4 months (mom died unexpectedly at age 67) so i have xanax for bad ones that pop up.

1066531 tn?1254969334 I’ve been working out for many years now, and i want to know how I can tone my body better without losing a large portion of weight, mostly my chest and midsection? I’m 6ft 198lbs I would like to be around 195 but in much better “shape”. My diet ***** and i’m trying to work on it, but I work out at the gym 2-3 times a week lifting weights and running. I dont run a whole bunch though, would that help my problem or will that just make me lose wieght?
Avatar n tn I would think a month after the heart attack would be a reasonable time to resume lifting. The size of the heart attack would also influence this --longer with a larger heart attack. There should be a weight limit and I would think 20 to 40 pounds and do repetitions and not do deadlifts of very large weights.
Avatar m tn An analysis of data from major studies does not support the use of aspirin as a preventive medicine in people who have not had a heart attack, stroke or heart problems. In these people, aspirin provides no benefits and puts them at risk for side effects such as dangerous bleeding in the brain or stomach, the FDA said. Also, the aspirin will not help you with lowering cholesterol and heart murmur. Try to lose weight and stay active. That is the best way to avoid future heart issues.

Avatar m tn My mother and I are very worried about him, my Mother just lost her brother a week ago to a massive heart attack in which he had a double bypass and had another heart attack after surgery. Is this normal for a diabetic? Thanks for your help.
712314 tn?1303098090 I was recently at my doctors, and although i am at a slightly above average wieght, she's concern that at the rate i'm loosing weight, that i could have a heart attack. When ever i think of girls with ED having heart attacks though, i think of underweight girls, so how is it that at my current weight i could have a heart attack, and how do i help prevent it?
Avatar n tn Im 26, and am constantly tired/fatigued and am losing weight without even trying now (like 1 stone in the last 3-4 weeks). Prior to this I was on a reduced calorie diet and exercise regime and lost a stone over 6 wk period. Have been reading about gastric dumping and the syptoms all fit with what Iam experiencing but it only seems to be related to gastic surgery which I have never had.
Avatar m tn m still working and have a stress full job. I get tired very quickly (after my heart attack. Am I going to die soon? Should I quite working? Do I qualify for disability insurance?
Avatar n tn I have been battling being heavy for some 6 years I lift weights run everything for years my blood tests have been a little bump not much to be concerned about. Well after a heart attack at 38 following a strict diet and exercise regimen I am still gaining finally at my witts end I went to the doctor that little bump is hyperactive thyroid. I go for a scan Thursday. Why am i gaining and not losing. Will I lose weight. Should I get my thyroid cut out I am so aggravated.
2053729 tn?1330435506 According to what I have researched, my BMR is 2485 and I eat about 1800 calories a day, so I should be losing weight just being me. Add in the approximate 2000 calories I burn with my exercise and I should be melting into a puddle! We do a lot of weights, pilates, abs, pushups, strength bands and squats at my aerobics class so I know my body is changing. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? I have had my thyroid checked in the last 4 months and it was "normal".
